About this Topic

The National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS) obtains information about the gender of the victims for the non-fatal violent crimes of rape, sexual assault, robbery, aggravated and simple assault, and personal theft (purse snatching/pocket picking). For property crimes the gender of the adult household respondents who provide the information are obtained. Property crimes include household burglary, motor vehicle theft and property theft.

Victims of violent crimes and personal thefts are also asked to provide information about the gender(s) of the offender(s).
