Abstract This report presents trend data for 1973-95 from the National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS), including data collected both before and after a substantial methodological redesign that was implemented in 1992. Data collected prior to 1992 have been adjusted for this report to take into account methodological improvements introduced in the survey redesign. The report describes the overall trends for the NCVS-measured crimes of rape, robbery, aggravated and simple assault, household burglary, theft, and motor vehicle theft, as well as for homicide as measured by the FBI's Uniform Crime Reports. It includes a description of the method used to adjust the NCVS data collected before 1992 as well as the underlying assumptions and limitations of the adjustment method. source
