2015 to 2018

Victimization estimates
Based on the 2018 survey, there were 23.2 violent
victimizations per 1,000 U.S. residents age 12 or
older (figure 5). From 1993 to 2018, the rate of
violent victimization declined 71%, from 79.8 to 23.2
victimizations per 1,000 persons age 12 or older. The rate
of violent victimization reported to police also declined
71% during this period, from 33.8 to 9.9 victimizations
reported to police per 1,000 persons age 12 or older.

From 2015 to 2018, statistically significant changes
occurred in the total number and rate of violent
victimizations and in specific types of violent-crime
victimizations. Across that period, the total number of
violent victimizations increased 28%, from 5,006,620
to 6,385,520 victimizations. The rate of total violent
victimization increased from 18.6 to 23.2 victimizations
per 1,000 persons. Excluding simple assault, the
rate of violent victimization also increased, from 6.8
victimizations per 1,000 persons age 12 or older in 2015
to 8.6 per 1,000 in 2018.2

includes rape or sexual assault, robbery, aggravated
assault, and simple assault (table 1). By type of violent
crime, the rate of rape or sexual-assault victimization
increased from 1.4 victimizations per 1,000 persons age
12 or older in 2017 to 2.7 in 2018. All other crime types
did not have a statistically significant change from 2017
to 2018.
