As previously mentioned, the Public Health Outcomes Framework (PHOF) indicator for domestic abuse is reported at a police area level, so each London borough has the same recorded rate.

Table 8 shows recent trends in the number of recorded domestic crime offences in Hackney and each of its statistical peer boroughs.  There has been a 3% increase in the number of such offences in Hackney over the period shown, which is lower than most of the other boroughs.
