Unit of Observation:
All persons in the United States aged 12 and over.
Data Collection Notes:
2008-12-17 This data collection has been deaccessioned and is no longer available. Replaced by study 22920.
Through 1999, the NCVS data were maintained under
a single study number. Beginning with the year 2000, files from
individual years have separate study numbers.
The NCVS data are
organized by year, with six collection quarters comprising an annual
file: the four quarters of the current year plus the first two
quarters of the following year.
The number of records and
variables for each file, as well as the logical record length, can be
found in the codebooks.
Incident-Level files were created from the
annual hierarchical files and include information on victims rather
than nonvictims. There are three types of Incident-Level files: single
year, concatenated annual, and concatenated rape subset. In all three
types, an Incident record was extracted from the hierarchical full
files. The Incident-Level files were bounded by calendar year.
Stratified multistage cluster sample.
The data files include three weight variables: household,
person, and incident. To use the weights correctly they must be
adjusted. See the codebook for information on how to adjust the
weights to calculate household, population, and victimization
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.
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.
