The primary purpose of the Identity Theft Supplement is to obtain additional information about identity theft-related victimizations so that policymakers, academic researchers, practitioners at the Federal, state and local levels, and special interest groups who are concerned with identity theft can make informed decisions concerning policies and programs. Responses are linked to the NCVS survey instrument responses for a more complete understanding of the individual's circumstances.

Scope of Study
Each household member age 16 years or older was administered the 2014 ITS questionnaire.
The data contain weights for creating national estimates.

computer-assisted telephone interview (CATI)
The ITS response rate was 90.6 percent. The combined overall NCVS-ITS unit response rate for NCVS households, NCVS persons, and ITS persons was 66.1 percent.
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:
Created variable labels and/or value labels.
Standardized missing values.
Checked for undocumented or out-of-range codes.
