NCVS Victimization Analysis Tool
This analysis tool allows you to examine National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS) data on both violent and property crime by select victim, household, and incident characteristics. The tool gives you instant access to victimization estimates from 1993 to the most recent year that NCVS data are available. The NCVS is an annual data collection conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau for BJS.

National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS) API
The NCVS RESTful API is a web service that provides criminal victimization data obtained annually from a nationally representative sample of about 130,000 households and 225,000 persons interviewed each year. NCVS data describe the frequency, characteristics, and consequences of criminal victimization in the United States. The NCVS provides the largest national forum for victims to describe the impact of crime and characteristics of violent offenders.
