This longitudinal file for the National Crime Surveys (NCS)
contains selected variables related to whether a crime was reported to
the police for households that responded to the NCS on three
consecutive interviews between July 1988 and December 1989 and had
experienced at least one criminal victimization during that time
period. Variable names, for the most part, are identical to those used
in the hierarchical files currently available for the National Crime
Surveys (see NATIONAL CRIME SURVEYS: NATIONAL SAMPLE, 1986-1991
[NEAR-TERM DATA] [ICPSR 8864]). Three new variables were created, and
one existing variable was altered. The TIME variable describes whether
the interview was the first, second, or third for the household in the
period between July 1988 and December 1989. V4410 was recoded to give
the most important reason the crime was not reported to the police for
all households that responded to questions V4390-V4410. RELNOFF was
created from variables V4209-V4267 to reflect the closest relation any
offender had to the victim, and INJURE was created from variables
V4100-V4107 to indicate minor injury, serious injury, or none at all.
The file is sorted by households.

Scope of Study
For the NCS, a stratified multistage cluster sampling
design was employed. For this longitudinal file, households
