Answered By:

Appendix 2 provides data on the amount of victims of crime where a knife was used to injure by borough from 2008 - 2013.

The data sets in MQ 2548, 2549, 2553 are irreconcilable with the data sets in MQs 2550, 2551, 2552. A comparison between the victims of knife crime where a knife was used to injure with the perpetrators of knife crime where a knife was used to injure would not provide robust outcome.
