Data Collection Notes:
2008-12-17 This data collection has been deaccessioned and is no longer available. Replaced by studies 22929, 22928,22927, 22926, 22925, 22924, 22923, 22922.
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.
Data for the Full Files are hierarchically structured, with four
levels: Address ID, Household, Person, and Incident. 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.
All person-level files have been
removed from the Web site because of limited interest in them and the
relative ease of creating person-level files without the limitation of
a 10 percent sample of nonvictims.
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)
personal and telephone interviews
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.
