September 5, 1993    NCJ 143288

In 1992, 23% of U.S. households were victimized by a theft or a violent crime, the lowest percentage since 1975, when the National Crime Victimization Survey first estimated the dispersion of crime among households. In addition to presenting the percentages of households touched by the crimes of rape, robbery, assault, burglary, theft, and motor vehicle theft, this annual BJS Bulletin also considers victims' race, ethnicity, income, region, and place of residence.
