Criminal victimization and attitudes toward crime in Virginia : a research report by Clifton D Bryant( Book )

4 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this report is to present the results of a crime victimization survey conducted among Virginia residents. The description of the findings is divided into four sections: criminal victimization experiences, reporting of victimizations, attitudes toward crime, and crime prevention and protection measures. The report is offered as a source of information about the extent of criminality in Virginia and the attitudes and experiences of Virginia citizens relative to crime and crime prevention. While the study focused exclusively on residents of Virginia, comparisons with national data and references to other victimization studies are occasionally presented. The report studies community attitudes in relationship to age, education, social status, sex, employment, and community size. Over one-third of the respondent group had family members who had been victims of crime within the past year. The great majority of these crimes were property-related, with 6% of the households having individuals who had fallen victim to violent crimes. The overall rate of criminal victimization was somewhat higher than reported in earlier national surveys. Crime victimization was somewhat greater in urban communities than rural communities, especially in regard to property victimization. In terms of general trends, the likelihood of being victimized was highest for people up to age 29 and declined with each successive age group. The lowest incidence of total victimization occurred in the lowest educational category and moved up with each successively higher educational bracket, with the exception of a very minor drop between the "post high school" and "college" categories.
