Answered By:

The attached tables in Appendix 3 provide data on the amount of victims of knife crime where a knife was used to injure by borough and age group covering the period from February 2012 to date.

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.
