The sixth ICVS was conducted from March to May 2006. The survey was administered to 2,406 Idaho households as a means of enhancing the knowledge and understanding of crime and victimization in Idaho. The survey was also designed to provide information that would assist in evaluating the effectiveness of criminal justice and health services programs operated in Idaho by members of the Idaho Research and Analysis Consortium (IRAC).
