A graph displays the percent of households victimized by selected crimes of violence and theft for 1975-1985, followed by graphs of the percent of households victimized by selected crimes by race of household head for 1975-1985. A series of tables shows the number of households victimized by various crimes in 1985 and the percent change since 1984; the number and percent distribution of victimized households by crime type for 1975-1985; the percent of victimized households by crime type and selected household characteristics (race of household head, annual family income, and place of residence) for 1985; and the percent of victimized households by selected crimes and household size for 1985. Other graphs display victimized households by selected crimes and place of residence for 1975-1985; percent of households victimized by crime type, race of household head, and place of residence for 1981-1985; and the percentage of households that experienced selected negative life events in a year. Twenty-five percent of the Nation's households were touched by a crime of violence or theft in 1985 compared to 26 percent in 1984 and 32 percent in 1975. A narrative summary of data is provided.
