OJJDP Bulletin Examines Juvenile Violent Victimization

JUVJUST - Juvenile Violent Victimization, 1995-2018

OJJDP has released "Juvenile Violent Victimization, 1995-2018." The bulletin examines findings from the OJJDP-funded analysis of data on both juvenile victims and victimization. Findings presented in this bulletin show that overall the rate of violent victimization for juveniles has declined since 1995 but did not change from 2015 to 2018.

This bulletin uses three data sources to examine juvenile violent victimization from 1995 to 2018. The data are derived from the National Crime Victimization Survey, the National Incident-Based Reporting System, and the National Vital Statistics System.
