  Annotation: This report examines the incidence of college student victimization and compares the findings to persons of similar ages in the general population.
Abstract: In addition, the report describes the extent to which student victimization occurs on campus and in off-campus locations and settings, as well as the involvement of alcohol and drugs in student victimizations. Highlights include the following: on average, from 1995 to 2002, comparing persons ages 18-24, male college students were twice as likely to be victims of overall violence than female students (80 versus 43 per 1,000); White students had somewhat higher rates of violent victimization than Blacks and higher rates than students of other races (65 versus 52 and 37 per 1,000 respectively); for females, nonstudents were over 1.5 times more likely than college students to be a victim of a violent crime (71 versus 43 per 1,000). 8 tables
