National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS)
"The survey (NCVS) is the nation's primary source of information on criminal victimization. "NCVS collects information from victims on nonfatal violent and property crimes, reported and not reported to the police, against persons age 12 or older. Each year, data are obtained from a nationally representative sample of about 90,000 households, comprising nearly 160,000 persons, on the frequency, characteristics, and consequences of criminal victimization in the United States. Each household is interviewed twice during the year." NCVS looks at crime as experienced by victims."
