Unit of Observation:
All persons in the United States aged 12 and over.
Data Collection Notes:
This version of NCVS data is an alternative to NCVS data available in hierarchical format. Under this version the four record types that comprise the hierarchical file are available as four separate rectangular files. The use of four record-type files simplifies the use of the data while maintaining all of the information and functionality present in the hierarchical format.
The 2003 Incident-Level Extract File was created from the record-type files and includes information on victims of crime. Nonvictims are not included. Records were extracted from the Incident Record-Type File and bounded by the year that the incident occurred. These records were then merged to their parent records from the Person Record-Type and Household Record-Type files.
A separate data collection, NATIONAL CRIME VICTIMIZATION SURVEY, 1992-2005: CONCATENATED FILES (ICPSR 4699), contains a multi-year concatenated incident-level file and rape subset file.
The data were collected by the United States Department of Commerce, Bureau of the Census.
Stratified multistage cluster sample.
The data files include several weight variables used to calculate national estimates of: households, persons, victimizations, and incidents. The codebook describes how to use the weights.
Mode of Data Collection:
computer-assisted telephone interview (CATI),
Extent of Processing: ICPSR data undergo a confidentiality review and are altered when necessary to limit the risk of
disclosure. ICPSR also routinely creates ready-to-go data files along with setups in the major
statistical software formats as well as standard codebooks to accompany the data. In addition to
these procedures, ICPSR performed the following processing steps for this data collection:
Performed consistency checks.
Created variable labels and/or value labels.
Standardized missing values.
Performed recodes and/or calculated derived variables.
Checked for undocumented or out-of-range codes.
Restrictions: This data collection may not be used for any purpose other than statistical reporting and analysis. Use of these data to learn the identity of any person or establishment is prohibited.
