The experience survey in general did not divulge information not covered in the statistical material. However, it provided background orientation on attitudes, opinion, policy, trends and scope of the problem as seen by a cross section of the professional community. Very few of these professionals had been giving attention to the problem of the elderly offender as a special category. The explanation generally offered was that the scope is so limited that it did not arouse special attention. Categories and indication of frequencies of offences should be compared with relevant sections and items in the criminal statistics available. There did not seem to be any need to increase the number of respondents as answers were repeated in the interviewed group, and there seemed to be hardly any radically contrasting views.
