  • An estimated five out of six people will be victims of either completed or attempted violent crimes at least once in their lives (Koppel, 1987).
  • According to The National Women ’s Study, 683,000 forcible rapes occur every year, which equals 56,916 per month; 1,871 per day; 78 per hour; and 1.3 per minute (National Center for Victims of Crime &Crime Victims Research and Treatment Center, 1992).
  • Findings from The National Women ’s Study reveal that rape victims compared to non-crime victims were: 5.3 times more likely to have used prescription drugs non-medically (14.7 percent vs.2.8 percent); 3.4 times as likely to have used marijuana (52.2 percent vs.15.5 percent); 6 times more likely to have used cocaine (15.5 percent vs 2.6 percent);10.1 times more likely to have used hard drugs other than cocaine (12.1 percent vs. 1.2 percent); and 6.4 times more likely to have used hard drugs or cocaine (19.2 percent vs.3 percent).  Additionally,rape victims were 4.1 times more likely than non-crime victims to have contemplated suicide and 13 times more likely to have actually made a suicide attempt (Ibid ).
  • In the United States, there are over 3,400 animal protection shelters and only about 1,200 shelters for battered women (Buel, 1994).
  • One out of four women will be sexually assaulted on a college campus (Hirsch,1990).
  • Although the actual number of federal victims is not tracked,the Federal Bureau of Investigation opened 236,510 cases for investigation in fiscal year 1994.  That same year, the U.S.Attorneys ’offices issued indictments in 57,133 cases and identified 133,332 victims, a 41 percent increase from 1993.  The number of child victims increased by 118 percent (Office for Victims of Crime, 1996).

General Data
  • Law enforcement agencies across the nation recorded a Crime Index clearance rate of 21 percent;the rate was highest for murder (69 percent), and lowest (14 percent) for burglary (Ibid).
  • There was an average of 2.5 full-time officers for every 1,000 people in the U.S.(Ibid).
  • Victimization rates in 1999 were the lowest since the creation of the National Crime Victimization Survey in 1973 (Rennison, August 2000).
  • In 1999, there were 33 violent victimizations per 1,000 persons age 12 or older.This represented a 10 percent decrease from 1998.  The property victimization rate fell 9 percent since last year.  However, there was an increase in rape (20 percent)and sexual assault (33.3 percent) rates in 1999 (Ibid).
  • Forty-four percent of overall violent victimization and twenty-four percent of all property crimes were reported to police in 1999 (Ibid).
  • An estimated 28.8 million violent and property crimes were experienced by persons over 12 in 1999.  This included 21.2 million property crimes (burglary,motor vehicle theft, and household theft), 7.4 million violent crimes (rape or sexual assault, robbery, aggravated assault, and simple assault), and about 0.2 million personal thefts (pocket picking and purse snatching) (Ibid).

  • In 1998, urban residents accounted for only 29 percent of the U.S. population, but sustained 38 percent of all violent and property crime.  The proportion was more balanced with suburban residents, who accounted for 51 percent of the population and suffered 47 percent violent and property crimes.  Rural residents,making up 20 percent of the U.S. population, were victims of 15 percent of all violent and property crime (Duhart, 2000).
