Abstract In 2011, U.S. residents age 12 or older experienced an estimated 5.8 million violent victimizations and 17.1 million property victimizations. Between 2010 and 2011, the overall victimization rate for violent crime increased 17%, from 19.3 to 22.5 victimizations per 1,000 persons age 12 or older. The increase in aggravated and simple assault accounted for all of the increase in total violence. Since 1993, the rate of violent crime has declined by 72% from 79.8 to 22.5 per 1,000 persons age 12 or older. Although the 17% change in the violent victimization rate from 2010 to 2011 is relatively large, the actual change in the rate between 2010 and 2011 (3.3 per 1,000) is below the average annual change in rates for the past two decades (4.3 per 1,000) (see Methodology, Historical change to the NCVS violent victimization rate (page 15) for more information).The information in this report is based on data from the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS).
