Abstract This Special Report presents data from the redesigned NCVS that examines violent crime across the general population, ages 12 or older. It compares teenagers and young adults to older persons and presents the high victimization rates of young people in the United States. The report emphasizes graphical presentations for victimization data about the violent crimes of rape, robbery, and aggravated assault (from the NCVS) and homicide (from crimes reported to police). Differences in levels of violence by race and sex are explored. The report covers 1992 through 1994. source
