Every year 463,000 first-residence homes are burgled, according to data gathered by the survey Cadre de vie et sécurité from 2007 to 2015. The theft of jewels and computer material rose throughout this period. Hi-fi material (photographs and videos) and money (cash, credit or debit cards or cheques) continue to remain stable.
Administrative documentation (identity cards, car-related documents…), antiques and works of art and two-wheel vehicles are the goods least stolen by thieves and there is a downward trend.
|Antiques and works of art||6%||3%||1%|
At a more moderate level, goods stolen due to burglaries of first-residence homes were clothes, DIY material and telephone appliances. Although the first two articles have continued to be stolen more frequently, the theft of telephone appliances has remained stable at between 9 and almost 12%.

The generic group labelled “other objects” stolen amounts to 21%.
Factors like the price of goods and the ease at which they can be sold on the black market because of a demand for certain items helps to explain why some objects are more frequently stolen than others during burglaries.
