Event Site: Online
Michael Planty, chief of the Victimization Statistics Unit at the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS), will conduct this webinar on the approaches to using the National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS) to produce subnational estimates. While the NCVS was originally designed to generate national estimates of the level and change in reported and unreported crime and incident characteristics, BJS has been exploring a variety of approaches for using the NCVS to produce subnational estimates of victimization. Initial efforts have yielded both model-based estimates of violent and property crime in the 50 states and the District of Columbia and a select set of direct estimates generated by reweighting existing NCVS sample in large states and metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs).

Dr. Planty will share initial findings on variations in reported and unreported crime rates and incident characteristics across states and large MSAs from the initial phases of the NCVS subnational program. He will discuss the potential utility of subnational estimates for better understanding patterns of crime and victimization, the future of the NCVS subnational program, and the larger planned framework for using the initial work to provide local level estimates of victimization.
