Stephan, James J., "1984 Census of State Adult Correctional Facilities." NCJ 105585, Washington, DC: United States Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Statistics, Aug 1987.

Facilities were included in the census if they were staffed with State employees; housed primarily State prisoners; were physically, functionally, and administratively separate from other facilities; and were operational on the reference date, June 30, 1984. The census covered the following State-operated adult correctional facilities: prisons; prison farms; reception, diagnostic, and classification centers; road camps; forestry and conservation camps; youthful offender facilities (except in California); vocational training facilities; drug and alcohol treatment facilities; and State-operated jails in Alaska, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Rhode Island, and Vermont. Four tables provide a national overview of facilities and inmates/residents, and eight tables present data on confinement facilities and inmates by security level of facility, size, sex of inmates housed, and facility functions. Twenty tables describe confinement and community-based facilities by region and State. A narrative summary of the tabular data is included.

The report includes data on violent crimes (rape/sexual assault, robbery, aggravated assault and simple assault), property crimes (burglary, motor vehicle theft and property theft), and personal theft (pocket picking and purse snatching), and the characteristics of victims of these crimes. The report also includes estimates of intimate partner violent crime and use of firearms and other weapons in the commission of violent crime overall.

At the end of the year, 1,405 prisoners were under sentence of death, and 21 had been executed. All these prisoners were convicted of murder. Seventeen were female; two-thirds had a prior felony conviction. Nearly 63 percent were held by States in the south, 21 percent by western States, 12 percent by north central States, and 4 percent by northeastern States. U.S. Supreme Court decisions struck down State law requiring the death penalty for specified crimes and established that a State need not require a review of each sentence for its proportionality with comparable cases. It also held that jurors could be excused if the trial judge deemed their views on the death penalty as preventing or impairing the performance of their duties. At yearend, 37 States and the Federal Government had laws authorizing the death penalty. New York and Massachusetts struck down the death penalty through court decisions. Nine States changed their existing death penalty laws. Eight States provided for more than one method of execution. Twenty-one States specified a minimum age for imposing the death penalty. Data tables on the criminal histories of those under sentence of death, State-by-State profiles, footnotes, and an appendix discussing race and capital punishment.

Provides information on facilities, inmates, programs and staff of State and Federal correctional facilities throughout the Nation. Earlier censuses were conducted in 1974, 1979, 1984, and 1990. Information was collected from 1,390 public and 110 private facilities, including general confinement institutions, prison boot camps, reception/diagnosis/classification centers, prison hospitals, and facilities for alcohol and drug treatment, work release/prerelease, and youthful offenders. In the 5 years between censuses, prison construction nearly kept pace with prison population growth. Between 1990 and 1995 State and Federal governments added 213 prisons and more than 280,000 prison beds -- representing a 41% increase in prison capacity. In 1995 State prisons were on average operating at 4% above rated capacity and Federal prisons at 25% above capacity. At mid-1995 about 1 in 4 State correctional facilities were under court order or consent decree to limit population or to address specific conditions. In 1995, correctional authorities recorded more than 14,000 assaults on prison staff, up 32% from 1990, and nearly 26,000 assaults on inmates, up 20% from 1990. Relative to the number of inmates, however, the annual number of assaults on other inmates dropped from 31 per 1,000 inmates in 1990 to 27 per 1,000 in 1995, and the number of assaults on staff remained unchanged at 15 per 1,000 inmates.

By the end of 1982, the number of inmates under sentence of death stood at 1,050, the largest ever recorded in the Nation. The number of persons sentenced to death in 1982 was 264, higher than in any other year except 1975. Departures from Death Row by means other than execution fell to 68, one of the smallest totals in recent history. The large number of persons on Death Row in 1982 reflected both an increase in the number of death sentences handed down over the years and lengthened stays because of long appeals. Pertinent judicial decisions (such as Furman v. Georgia, Eddings v. Oklahoma, and State v. Logan) are discussed in relation to capital punishment. Two tables, one graph, and eight recommended readings are supplied.

Those executed during 1990 had spent an average of 9 years and 8 months awaiting execution, about 1 year and 9 months longer on average than the 23 persons executed during 1990. In addition, during 1991, 265 prisoners under sentence of death were received by State prisons from the courts. Furthermore, during the year 106 persons had their death sentences vacated, two had their sentence commuted, and seven died in prison while still under a death sentence. At the end of the year, 34 States reported a total of 2,482 prisoners under sentence of death, a 5-percent increase from the number held in 1989. All these prisoners had been convicted of murder. Their median time since sentencing was 5 years. About 70 percent of those for whom criminal-history data were available had a prior felony conviction, with about one in 12 having a prior homicide conviction. Tables, map, and notes

The U.S. Supreme Court has interpreted Section 1983 of the U.S. Code to permit inmates to sue State correctional officials when the conditions of confinement fail to meet constitutional standards. Findings from this study show that Section 1983 litigation can be distinguished by three gradations of lawsuits. The first gradation consists of cases dismissed by the courts in 6 months or less because the issues raised lack an adequate basis in law or fact. The second gradation includes cases that survive from 6 to 12 months as the proportion of issues dismissed by the court decreases, and the incidence of stipulated dismissals and successful motions by defendants to dismiss increase. The final gradation consists of cases that take up to 2 years or more to be resolved, because the issues involved are much more likely to have appointed counsel and the holding of evidentiary hearings. Two policy implications flow from the evidence concerning case gradations. Cases that lack an adequate basis in law or fact should be resolved through State administrative grievance procedures instead of through litigation in the Federal courts. Second, the findings raise the issue of how best to handle the remaining two gradations of cases. A systematic approach should be taken to determine the most efficient methods of handling Section 1983 cases that cannot be resolved administratively. 15 references

Thirteen States executed 31 prisoners during 1992, more than double the 14 executed in 1991 and the largest of any year since the U.S. Supreme Court reinstated capital punishment in 1976. The prisoners executed during 1992 had been under sentence of death an average of 9 years and 6 months, about 2 months shorter than the average for inmates executed the previous year. During 1992, 265 prisoners under a sentence of death were received by State prison systems from the courts. In the same year, 117 persons had their death sentences overturned, two had their sentences commuted, and seven died while under a death sentence. At the year's end, 34 States and the Federal prison system held a total of 2,575 prisoners under sentence of death. They had all been convicted of murder. Nearly seven in 10 of those with known criminal histories had prior felony convictions; about one in 11 had a prior homicide conviction. Just over 58 percent of the death row inmates were white, 40 percent were black, 0.9 percent were American Indian, and 0.5 percent were Asian American. Among those for whom such a determination could be made, 7.6 percent were of Hispanic origin. Fifty-six percent were held by States in the South, 22 percent by Western States, 16 percent by Midwestern States, and 6 percent by Eastern States. Five States revised provisions related to capital punishment. Fifteen states do not have a death penalty. Tables, figures, and appended methodological information

Maltz, Michael D.; Zawitz, Marianne W., "Displaying Violent Crime Trends Using Estimates from the National Crime Victimization Survey." Technical Report. NCJ 167881, United States Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Statistics, Jun 1998.

Intended for an audience that is not trained in statistics, this report graphically presents violent crime trends from the National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS). Because the NCVS is based on the victimization experience of a sample of U.S. households, the rates and numbers from it are estimates which, by definition, are not exact. This report discusses the precision of these estimates to aid readers in interpreting the data over time. Included are graphics depicting violent crime rates from 1973 96 and 1995 96 changes for the crimes of rape, robbery, aggravated and simple assault, and murder. In the context of the NCVS, the report discusses sampling, statistical significance, and statistical inference. Also included are two appendices concerning additional information on basic statistical principles and the data used in the graphics.

Greenfeld, Lawrence A., "Drunk Driving." Bureau of Justice Statistics Special Report. NCJ 109945, Washington, DC: United States Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Statistics, Feb 1988.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that a quarter of a million persons were killed in alcohol-related motor vehicle crashes over the past decade. Each year, more than 650,000 persons are injured in such crashes. Data provided to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) by State and local agencies indicate that between 1970 and 1986, DUI arrests rose more than 127 percent, while the number of licensed drivers rose by 42 percent. Arrests were highest among 21-year-olds, peaking at a rate of 1 for every 39 drivers of that age in 1983. Data are given for DUI arrests in relation to legislative changes and for DWI offenders in jail. The technique for determining blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is explained. The portion of the study relating to jail inmates is based on self-report data from the 1983 Survey of Inmates of Local Jails. A multistage stratified sample of 407 jails yielded a random sample of 5,878 inmates selected for personal interviews. Results show that 95 percent of those in jail for DWI were male, had a median age of 32, and reflected a racial distribution similar to the adult general population. Findings indicate that nearly half of all inmates in jail for DWI had previously been involved in an alcohol abuse treatment program. Tabular data and 19 references.

The National Crime Victimization Survey -- a major source of the Nation's statistics on criminal victimization -- has undergone an extensive redesign. A collaborative effort on this redesign among several institutions and agencies began in the late 1970's and focused primarily on improving the accuracy and utility of crime measurement. Redesign focused on enhancing screening that would better stimulate respondents' recall of victimizations; devising screening questions that sharpen the concepts of criminal victimization and diminish the effects of subjective interpretations of the survey questions; and introducing additional questions on the nature and consequences of victimizations that would yield useful data for analysis. In 1992 the redesign of the survey was introduced for half of the sample in such a way that comparisons could be made. This report analyzes the differences in estimates from the two designs. In this paper, the survey prior to the redesign is referred to as the National Crime Survey (NCS), and that after the redesign is referred to as the National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS). The study considers the effects of the new design on estimates of crime rates and for different types of events. Also considered are the effects of the redesign within categories of victims. The study found that respondents generally recounted more victimizations in the new design than the old. They were given a larger number of cues to assist in the recall and recounting of eligible crime events. The increased cueing for gray-area events and the subsequent higher rates of recounting in the new design may also explain the apparent differences in the effect of the design for different types of respondents. 11 references

Cohen, Thomas J., "Federal Tort Trials and Verdicts, 2002-2003." NCJ 208713, Washington, DC: United States Department of Justice, Office of Justice Programs, Aug 2005.

Analyzing public use data assembled by the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts and the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS), the report is the latest edition in a series on the topic of tort trials. Information includes the types of tort cases that proceed to trial, plaintiff win rates, case processing times, and estimated median damage awards. The report also describes the types of Federal jurisdictions in tort trial cases, the differences between tort bench and jury trials, and details about asbestos and non-asbestos product liability trials (1990 through 2003). The overall trends in tort trial litigation from 1970 to 2003 are also examined. Highlights include the following: plaintiffs won in 48 percent of tort trials terminated in U.S. district courts in 2002 through 2003. Plaintiffs won less frequently in medical malpractice (37 percent) and product liability trials (34 percent). An estimated 9 out of 10 tort trials involved personal injury issues--most frequently, product liability, motor vehicle (accident), marine, and medical malpractice cases. Eighty-four percent of plaintiff winners received monetary damages with an estimated median award of $201,000. Figures, tables, definitions

It also provides information from State inmates reporting on their personal characteristics and how these relate to HIV test results. Nationwide, prison authorities in 1991 reported that 2.2 percent of those confined in State and Federal facilities had tested positive for HIV. That same year, in a nationally representative sample survey of State prisoners, 2.2 percent were estimated to be HIV- positive, based on interviews with prisoners. These comparable rates suggest that important and useful information about HIV exposure can be reliably obtained from inmates. Jail and prison inmates are at greater risk than others of contracting AIDS because of their comparatively high rates of drug abuse. Tables and methodological information

Pollack, Harold; Reuter, Peter; Sevigny, Eric L., "If Drug Treatment Works So Well, Why Are So Many Drug Users in Prison?." NBER Working Paper 16731. Cambridge, MA: National Bureau of Economic Research, Jan 2011.

This paper examines the effectiveness of drug courts to reduce the size of the incarcerated drug-offending population using data from the Survey of Inmates in State Correctional Facilities and the Survey of Inmates in Local Jails. We find that very few of those entering state prison in 2004 or jail in 2002 would have been eligible for drug diversion through state drug courts. The policy implication is that drug courts and other diversion programs require substantial redesign if they are to contribute to a reduction in the incarcerated population.

Jankowski, Louis, "Jail Inmates, 1991." Bureau of Justice Statistics Bulletin. NCJ 134726, Washington, DC: United States Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Statistics, Jun 1992.

The survey obtained data from 1,124 jails in 799 jurisdictions, approximately one-third of all jails. The jails surveyed are facilities administered by local officials and designed to hold persons for more than 48 hours but usually for less than 1 year. At mid-year 1991, local jails in the United States held an estimated 426,479 persons, a 5.2-percent increase from midyear 1990. The average daily jail population for the year ending June 28, 1991, was 422,609, a 3.6-percent increase since 1990. Overall jail occupancy was 101 percent of the rated capacity of the Nation's jails. Males constituted 90.7 percent and females 9.3 percent of all jail inmates. White non-Hispanics were 41.1 percent of the local jail population; black non- Hispanics, 43.4 percent; Hispanics, 14.2 percent; and non- Hispanics of other races, 1.2 percent of all inmates reporting race. Unconvicted inmates were 51 percent of the adults being held in jails. The overall occupancy rate was 107 percent of rated capacity. Rated capacity increased by 9 percent, an expansion nearly twice the rate of inmate population growth. Twenty-seven percent of the jurisdictions had at least one jail under court order to limit population; 30 percent were under court order to improve one or more conditions of confinement. Data are also provided on inmate deaths. 12 tables

This technical report assesses the general patterns of victims' responses to being asked, 'How many times did this type of incident occur?' and provides data on how reports of high-frequency repeat victimizations have changed over time. It describes how different procedures for counting series victimizations would affect estimates of the level and annual rate of change in victimization for various crime types and incident characteristics. The report also describes how BJS will change its counting practices for estimating annual victimization rates in future reports.

United States Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Statistics, "National Crime Victimization Survey: Questions and Answers about the Redesign." NCJ 151171, Washington, DC: United States Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Statistics, Oct 1994.

The proposed improvements in the NCVS are intended to improve the reporting of the number and nature of victimizations, particularly for the crimes of simple assault, rape, and other sexual assault. At the same time, annual data collected with the redesigned questionnaire show that year-to-year trends continue relatively unchanged, with little change in violent crime and a slight decline in property crime. A new screening questionnaire, which is designed to determine whether the respondent has been the victim of any crime within the scope of the survey, uses extensive, detailed cues to help respondents recall and report incidents. These new questions and cues jog respondents' memories and let them know that the survey is interested in a broad spectrum of incidents, not just those involving weapons, severe violence, or strangers. Because of these changes, substantial increases occur in the extent to which victims tell the interviewers about simple assault and sexual crimes. Multiple questions and cues on crimes committed by family members, intimates, and acquaintances have been added, and the new NCVS broadens the scope of covered sexual incidents beyond the categories of rape and attempted rape. Some questions posed and answered pertain to whom the NCVS interviews, how survey participants are selected, how people are persuaded to participate, how the questionnaire works, when an incident is counted as a crime, and reasons for the change. 6 references

The National Crime Victimization Survey was intended to complement what is known about crime from the FBI's annual compilation of information reported to law enforcement agencies. The survey, which also counts incidents not reported to the police, provides a detailed picture of crime incidents, victims, and trends from the victim's perspective. The survey published in 1994 incorporated new questions to accommodate heightened interest in certain types of victimization, improved technology and improved survey methods. Victims are now reporting more types of crime incidents and the survey is capturing previously undetected victimizations. For the first time, the survey is measuring such victimizations as non-rape sexual assault and unwanted or coerced sexual contact that involves a threat or attempt to harm. Improved questions and cues aid victims in recalling victimizations. Year-to-year victimization comparisons for 1991-92 were calculated using the old questionnaire, and those for 1992-93 were prepared with information from the new questionnaire, so any published findings of differences between years should be considered reliable.

This annual report describes changes in the prison population during the first 6 months of 2007, compared to changes from yearend 2000 through yearend 2006. It details the incarceration rates for prisoners sentenced to more than 1 year by jurisdiction, the number of incarcerated males and females, and the number of prisoners admitted into and released from Federal and State jurisdictions. The bulletin also presents data on the total number of inmates held in custody in prisons or jails on June 30, 2007. It provides estimates of the custody population by gender, race, and age. The custody incarceration rates for these groups are also included. Counts of the number of noncitizens and individuals under age 18 held in custody are included. See also "Jail Inmates at Midyear 2007." Highlights include the following: Between January and June 2007, the prison population increased by 1.6 percent (or 24,919 prisoners), compared to a 2-percent increase during the first 6 months of 2006; the number of prisoners sentenced to more than 1 year increased 1.7 percent between December 31, 2006 and June 30, 2007, or at about the same rate as the total number of prisoners under jurisdiction; between 2000 and 2007, the number of inmates in custody in prisons or jails increased by 367,200; male inmates (315,100) accounted for 86 percent of the increase to the custody population; and female inmates (52,100) made up the remaining 14 percent.

Presents estimates of the number of living persons in the United States who have ever been to State or Federal prison. Such estimates include persons in prison and on parole, as well as those previously incarcerated but no longer under parole supervision. The report also provides updated estimates of the lifetime chances of going to prison using standard demographic life table techniques. Such techniques project the likelihood of incarceration for persons born in 2001, assuming current incarceration rates continue until their death. Each of the measures is estimated by age, gender, race, and Hispanic origin.

As defined in NCVS, nonfatal violent victimizations include rape, sexual assault, robbery, aggravated assault, and simple assault. Estimates of the number of children are provided by age of children (ages 0 to 11 and ages 12 to 17), type of crime, and location of the crime. The report also examines households that experienced violent crime by whether children lived in the household, type of crime, and location of the crime. Data on victimized households by type, composition, and characteristic are also presented.

The prison population increased 7.4 percent during the year, a slightly higher rate than in 1987. The 1988 increase of 43,000 prisoners equals a demand for more than 800 new prison beds per week. The number of prisoners at the end of the year set a new record for the 14th consecutive year. The number of sentenced prisoners per 100,000 residents was 244, also setting a new record. The growth was higher in the western States than in the other regions. In addition, female inmates increased more rapidly than male inmates. More than 14,000 State inmates were held in local jails because of crowding in State facilities. Most jurisdictions were operating above their reported capacity.

Provides a description of the general characteristics of prison populations serving time for nonviolent crimes as they exit State prisons. Nonviolent crimes are defined as property, drug, and public order offenses that do not involve a threat of harm or an actual attack upon a victim. To conduct this analysis, BJS used data collected under two statistical programs, the National Recidivism Reporting Program that last collected data on those discharged from prisons in 15 States in 1994 and the Survey of Inmates in State Correctional Facilities last conducted in 1997. This report examines the responses of inmates who indicated to interviewers that they expected to be released within 6 months. This is a web only document.

This annual Bulletin reports the number of male and female prisoners, the incarceration rates for States, and data on prison capacities and use of local jails because of prison crowding. Highlights include the following: During 1997 the number of female prisoners rose by 6.2%, slightly greater than the increase in male prisoners (5.2%). At yearend 1997, 79,624 women were in State or Federal prisons -- 6.4% of all prison inmates. On December 31, 1997, State prisons were operating at between 15% and 24% above capacity, while Federal prisons were operating at 19% above capacity. California (157,547), Texas (140,729), and the Federal system (112,973) together held 1 in every 3 prisoners in the Nation. Fifteen States, each holding fewer than 5,000 inmates, together held only 4% of the Nation's prisoners.

Bureau of Justice Statistics, "PREA Data Collection Activities, 2010." Prison Rape Elimination Act of 2003. NCJ 230448, Washington, DC: United States Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Statistics, Jun 2010.

The Prison Rape Elimination Act of 2003 (PREA) (P.L. 108-79) requires the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) to carry out, for each calendar year, a comprehensive statistical review and analysis of the incidence and effects of prison rape. The Act further specifies that the review and analysis shall be based on a random sample, or other scientifically appropriate sample of not less than 10 percent of all federal, state, and county prisons, and a representative sample of municipal prisons. Nearly 8,700 facilities nationwide are covered by the Act. BJS has developed a multiple-measure, multiple-mode data collection strategy to fully implement requirements under PREA. Results of data collection activities during 2008 and 2009: The Survey on Sexual Violence (SSV) in Correctional Facilities collects data annually on the incidence of sexual violence in adult and juvenile correctional facilities. Results for the 2007 survey for adults are expected to be released in August 2010. Detailed information on substantiated incidents for juveniles collected in 2007 and 2008 will be combined and issued in a separate report. The National Inmate Survey (NIS) gathers data directly from inmates on the incidence of sexual assault in correctional facilities. In August 2010 BJS expects to release the report entitled Sexual Victimization in State and Federal Prisons and Local Jails Reported by Inmates, 2008-09, which will provide prison and jail rankings as required under the Act and information on the circumstances of victimization. The Former Prisoner Survey (FPS) provides national estimates of the incidence of sexual victimization based on reports of former state prison inmates. Results are expected to be released by October 2010. The National Survey of Youth in Custody (NSYC) provides facility-level estimates of youth reporting sexual victimization in juvenile facilities.

The report estimates the impact of the Prison Litigation Reform Act and the Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act on the number of prisoner petitions. It also includes the trends in the number of prisoner petitions from 1980 through 2000. Highlights include the following: During 2000, 58,257 prisoner petitions were filed in U.S. District Courts--80 percent by State prison inmates and 20 percent by Federal inmates. The 1996 Prison Litigation Reform Act appears to have resulted in a decrease in the number of civil rights petitions filed by State and Federal prison inmates. The 1996 Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act appears to have resulted in an increase in the number of habeas corpus petitions filed by State prison inmates. 7 tables

This report from the U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS), presents information on the number of persons who requested police assistance in fiscal year (FY) 2011. Highlights of the findings include the following: an estimated 1 in 8 U.S. residents age 16 or older, or 31.4 million persons, requested assistance from police at least once, primarily to report a crime, suspicious activity, or neighborhood disturbance; the majority of persons who requested police assistance felt the officers acted properly (93 percent) and were helpful (86 percent), while about 85 percent of persons who requested police assistance were satisfied with the police response; and no statistical differences were found between the percentage of Hispanics (86 percent), Blacks (85 percent), and Whites (83 percent) who reported a crime or neighborhood disturbance and felt the police were helpful. The study also found that 93 percent of persons who requested police assistance felt the officers spent an appropriate amount of time with them during the contact, and the majority of persons who requested police assistance reported that they were just as likely or more likely to contact the police again for a similar problem. This report was compiled to examine the characteristics and experiences of persons who contacted law enforcement for assistance during FY 2011. Data for the report were obtained from BJS’s 2011 Police-Public Contact Survey, a supplement to the National Crime Victimization Survey. Tables, figure, and appendixes

SCPS reports patterns associated with case processing but the data are not sufficient to explain causal associations between the patterns, such as the efficacy of one form of pretrial release over another. BJS does not support such use of these data. [NACJD abstract.]

The Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) conducted the first-ever National Former Prisoner Survey (NFPS) between January 2008 and October 2008. This study presents data on sexual victimization experienced by former State prisoners during their prior term of incarceration, including any time served in a local jail, State prison, or post-release community-correctional facility. Data are provided on the prevalence of sexual victimization while incarcerated, by the type of victimization, and sex of former inmate. The report also examines individual-level and facility-level characteristics that may be correlated with sexual victimization and describes the circumstances surrounding victimization. Details are provided on the post-release responses of victims to sexual victimization, HIV rates of victims, and information on current employment status, housing, and living arrangements. Data were collected from a total of 317 parole offices in 40 States who were randomly included in the survey sample. A total of 17,738 completed interviews from former State prisoners who were under active supervision (i.e., required to contact a supervisory parole authority regularly in person, by mail, or by telephone) participated in the national survey.

Shenk, J. Frederick; Klaus, Patsy A., "The Economic Cost of Crime to Victims." Bureau of Justice Statistics Special Report. NCJ 93450, Washington, DC: United States Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Statistics, Apr 1984.

Since 1973, the NCS has included a series of questions on economic losses from each of the crimes measured by the survey, including rape, robbery, assault, personal and household larceny, burglary, and motor vehicle theft. Those victimized by any of these crimes were asked a series of questions about the event, including the extent of medical expenses, cash and property losses, and property damage. These data are presented for 1981, 1980, and 1975, in current and adjusted dollars. The aggregate total economic loss is presented for various crime categories and victim categories to indicate magnitude. Median and quartile loss statistics are presented as additional measures of the economic cost of crime. The median loss indicates that half of the victims lost that much or more, while the other half lost that much or less. The quartiles give some indication of the variation in the range of losses. The NCS data are limited in not covering a broader range of crimes that involve economic loss and in not measuring indirect costs shared by everyone in society (such as criminal justice system costs or higher insurance premiums). Also, psychic costs, such as feelings of fear or anxiety, are not measured.

This report examines victims of murder, non-negligent manslaughter, forcible rape, violent sexual assault, robbery, aggravated assault, kidnapping, and simple assault who are 65 years old or older. Results show that although, nearly 824,000 violent victimizations came to the attention of law enforcement in Michigan from 2005 to 2009, elderly persons age 65 or older experienced the lowest annual rate of personal violence; there were 204.5 violent victimizations per 100,000 persons in that age group and overall victimizations of the elderly accounted for 1.6 percent (or 13,220) of the total. Findings show that 47.4 percent of nonfatal violent victimizations (forcible rape, sexual assault, robbery, aggravated assault), were reported to law enforcement; elderly victims reported a higher percentage (58.5 percent) of nonfatal violent victimizations to law enforcement, compared to other age groups (47.2 percent); half (49.5 percent) of violent victimizations of the elderly known to law enforcement in Michigan involved serious violence, such as murder, rape, sexual assault, robbery, aggravated assault, and kidnapping; three out of 10 elderly victims of reported violence were victimized by their own child or grandchild; more than a third of violent victimizations of elderly women (37.8 percent) involved the victim’s child or grandchild, compared to less than a quarter of victimizations of elderly men (22.5 percent); the rate of reported violence against elderly men was 1.4 times higher than the rate for elderly women; and the rate of reported violent victimization by a stranger was more than 2 times greater for elderly men than for elderly women.

Catalano, Shannan, "Victimization During Household Burglary." Special Report. NCJ 227379, Washington, DC: United States Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Statistics, Sep 2010.

Presents findings from the National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS) on the characteristics of burglary, with comparisons between households where members were present and not present. It also examines the extent to which individuals in the residence are violently victimized when at home during these encounters. The NCVS classifies victimization as personal, rather than property crime, when a household member is present and experiences violence during a household burglary. This report classifies these violent burglaries differently so that they may be compared to traditionally classified burglaries. It also discusses crime characteristics such as household structure, location and type of residence, method of entry, time of day, type of violence, weapon use, injury, and reporting to police. Data on nonfatal violent victimization (rape/sexual assault, robbery, aggravated and simple assault) are drawn from the NCVS. Data on homicides are drawn from the Supplementary Homicide Report of the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting Program.

For each of the characteristics examined, the report also details victims' rationale for not reporting to the police, including beliefs that the police would not or could not help, that the crime was not important enough to report, or fear of reprisal or getting the offender into trouble. The report also examines trends from 1994 to 2010 in the types of crime not reported to the police and the reasons victimizations went unreported.
