With respect to fraud, the study shows that the percentage of matters which are very difficult to investigate has increased. This, in combination with a substantially increased influx of police reports in respect of fraud, has been significant for reducing the person-based clearance rate.

The reduced person-based clearance rate for assault offences cannot, however, be attributed as clearly to an increased influx of reports which are more difficult to clear as is the case for fraud.
