Race and Ethnicity of Violent Crime Offenders and Arrestees, 2018

This report compares the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program data on incidents of nonfatal violent crime to data from BJS’s National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS) to determine if arrest differences by race and ethnicity can be attributed to differences in criminal involvement. It examines offenders’ characteristics as reported by victims in the NCVS and provides information on racial and ethnic disparities beyond an arrestee and population-based comparison.

Methodological Research to Support the National Crime Victimization Survey: Self-Report Data on Rape and Sexual Assault – Pilot Test

This paper describes the methodology, key findings, recommendations, and limitations of the Rape and Sexual Assault Pilot Test. The Bureau of Justice Statistics initiated the study to develop recommendations on the best methods to collect data on rape and sexual assault within the National Crime Victimization Survey program, as data collections using different methodologies and definitions have generated competing estimates on the level of sexual victimization in the United States over the past two decades.

The Bureau of Justice Statistics funded this third-party report. It is not a BJS report and does not release official government statistics. The report is released to help inform interested parties of the research or analysis contained within and to encourage discussion. The results of the pilot test are not intended to provide official estimates of the prevalence or incidence of rape or sexual assault in the five metropolitan areas selected for the study. BJS has performed a limited review of the report to ensure the general accuracy of information and adherence to confidentiality and disclosure standards. Any statistics included in this report are not official BJS statistics unless they have been previously published in a BJS report. Any analysis, conclusions, or opinions expressed herein are those of the authors and do not necessarily represent the views, opinions, or policies of the Bureau of Justice Statistics or the U.S. Department of Justice. See Bureau of Justice Statistics Assessment of the Rape and Sexual Assault Pilot Test. (2021).
