This report presents 2016 National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS) data on violent and property crime victimizations reported and not reported to police, including the characteristics of crimes and victims and outcomes of victimization.

Selected Highlights:

  • U.S. residents age 12 or older experienced 5.7 million violent victimizations in 2016—a rate of 21.1 victimizations per 1,000 persons age 12 or older.
  • In 2016, U.S. households experienced 15.9 million property crimes—a rate of 119.4 per 1,000 households.
  • Fewer than half (42%) of violent victimizations were reported to police.
