Furthermore, there is the sketch of the basic criminological theories and the presentation of the project the European Sourcebook of Crime and Criminal Justice Statistics. In the conclusion of the theoretical part, a short history, the system of government of Croatia, its economy, and criminal justice are presented.
In the empirical part, the data of criminality numbers of all the criminal offences, criminal offences of murder, assault (physical injuries), rapes, thefts, robberies, burglaries, and the criminal offences of the abuse of illegal drugs in Croatia are presented for the period between the year 2000 and the year 2011.
In the continuation of the empirical part, the existence of the time trend was tested on the basis of the collected data (ESB). The approximate number of all the criminal offenses for the year 2018 was predicted by calculation of the linear trend. The comparison of the trends for the selected criminal offenses between Croatia, Slovenia, Austria, Hungary, and the EU members for the selected period per 100,000 inhabitants follows. The interpreted data are supported with the graphical display in order to understand them more easily and better.
