Publication Households Touched by Crime, 1982

Michael R. Rand

June 1, 1983    NCJ 88671

In 1982, households with high incomes, those in central cities, and those headed by blacks continued to be most vulnerable to crime. A fifth of the Nation's households were victimized by larcenies, the most common crime, while 7 percent were victims of attempted or completed burglary, and 6 percent had a member who was a violent crime victim. The percentage of households touched by crimes other than personal larcenies without contact did not fluctuate greatly between 1975-82. Statistical tables, graphs, charts and footnotes are supplied.
