The increase in recorded domestic abuse incidents for 2018 is most likely a result of an increase in the number of incidents being reported, rather than an increase in the number of incidents actually taking place. It should also be noted that widening of criteria constituting a domestic abuse incident has increased the number of incidents being classified as relating to domestic abuse.
