  Annotation: This U.S. Justice Department public announcement of October 30, 1994, summarizes data from the Bureau of Justice Statistics' 1993 National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS).
Abstract: The NCVS is administered by the Bureau of the Census each year to approximately 100,000 people 12 years old and older in approximately 50,000 households. NCVS findings for 1993 show that the number of Americans who were the victims of crime remained essentially unchanged compared to 1992. Nationwide, there were approximately 44 million personal and household crimes; however, there was no general trend up or down. Attempted assaults without a weapon were up 11 percent; however, other petty crimes, such as the theft of cash of property under $50, decreased 7 percent. Violent crime victimizations continued a 7-year increase, primarily because of an increase in attempted assaults. Victimization rates for personal crimes increased an estimated 5.6 percent between 1992 and 1993. Personal crimes consist of rape, other sexual attacks, robbery, assault, and personal thefts. The number of completed violent victimizations decreased slightly. The property crime victimization rate, which includes household burglary, motor vehicle theft, and property theft, declined 1 percent between 1992 and 1993. 1 table
