Annotation: This article discusses the use of generalized estimating equations and time-series methods for fitting longitudinal models in the National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS).
Abstract: These two longitudinal models are fit to NCVS data to predict the likelihood of reporting a violent crime to the police based on characteristics of the victim and the incident, and based on previous victimization experiences. In both models, higher reporting rates were associated with positive results accruing from reporting previous victimization to the police. 6 tables and 24 references
