Domestic Burglaries in France 2014

The risk of domestic burglary in France is generally very low, although as always it does depend on just where you live.

According to the Observatoire national de la délinquance et des réponses pénales (ONDRP), the number of domestic burglaries that took place in 2014 was 232,500, a burglary rate of 5.5 per 1,000 households.

What the distributional analysis shows is that 41% of the 36,522 communes in the country recorded no burglary at all.

In the vast majority of cases the communes concerned were amongst the smallest, with an average population of 310, compared with an average of 2,720 population reporting at least one burglary.

The following graphic shows how the burglary rate differs across the country ranging from around under 3/1,000 to 10+/1,000.

Whilst the highest number of burglaries inevitably correlates strongly with the size of the population, according to the Observatoire there are significant variations between urbanised areas.

Thus, whilst large areas of the Ile-de-France, Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur and the Vallée du Rhône show comparatively high rates of burglary, urban poles around Limoges, Rennes, Poitiers shows significantly lower rates due to a range of socio-economic factors.

On a department level the highest number of burglaries over 10,000 a year are recorded in the Bouches-du-Rhône, Nord, Paris, and Rhône.

Lowest number, below 1,000 burglaries in a year, are recorded in Lozère, Cantal, Creuse, Befolt, Hautes-Alpes, Haute-Marne, Ariège, Averyron, Indre, Corrèze, Alpes-Hautes-de-Provence, Meuse, Adrennes, Lot, Jura, Hautes-Pyrénées, Gers, Haute-Saône, Mayenne, Nièvre, Allier and Orne.
