Annotation: Using victim-level data derived from the Illinois Department of Law Enforcement's Supplementary Homicide Reports, this report examines the characteristics of every murder known to the police in Illinois from 1973 through 1982.
Abstract: The analyses compare the age, race, and sex of murder victims and known offenders, the murder weapons used, the relationship between the victims and known offenders, and the circumstances surrounding the murders. Analyses were also conducted for Chicago and the rest of the State separately as well as by four victim age groups: children, young adults, adults, and the elderly. An executive summary and graphic and tabular data are provided, along with an eight-item bibliography.
