Chart 2: Restitution Orders and Property Crime Rates, 1994-1995 to 2006-2007

This line chart illustrates the trends for restitution order made for property crimes

The left side of the Y axis measures the rate of property crimes and increases in increments of thousand from 0 to 6000. the right side of the Y axis measures the cases receiving restitution orders in percentages and increases in increments of five from 0 to 20

The X axis is divided by years from 1994-1995 to 2006-2007.
Among the two lines in the chart, one represents the property crime rates and the other represents the percentage of restitution cases

This chart shows a downward trend in restitution orders with more than 15% in 1994-1995 to less than 15% in 2006-2007.

This downward trend in restitution order appears to mirror the downward trend in the rate of property crimes.
