This report uses data from the National Crime Victimization Survey to summarize levels and rates of violent and non-violent crimes against persons 65 or older. These crimes are rape, robbery, assault, larceny, household burglary, household larceny, and motor vehicle theft. It also includes 1973-92 trends and data on offender weapon use; self-protective measures by victims; victim injury and treatment; stranger versus nonstranger crime; place of occurrence; and victims' income, marital status, and residence in urban, rural, or suburban area. Crime rates for the elderly are compared with those of other age groups by race and sex.
