New Bureau of Justice Statistics Report Released


The Bureau of Justice Statistics Crime Against Persons with Disabilities Statistical Tables provides estimates of non-fatal violent victimization (rape, sexual assault, robbery, and aggravated and simple assault) against persons aged 12 or older with disabilities from 2009 to 2013. Tables compare the victimization of persons with and without disabilities living in non-institutionalized households, including distributions by age, sex, race, Hispanic origin, victims’ types of disabilities, and other victim characteristics. Tables also include information on victim–offender relationship, time of crime, reporting to police, and use of victim service agencies. Findings are based on the National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS), and data from the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey (ACS) were used to generate victimization rates.
