Teenagers At Greatest Risk For Crime Victimization

Print More

This data-filled report shows that teenagers are twice as likely as any other age group to be victims of violent crime. Because victimization often provokes future delinquent behavior, the authors say the findings can help in developing strategies to prevent crime. The report also touches on the correlation between past and future victimization (specifically women and rape) and examines violent victimization among different races (finding that American Indians are the most likely to be victims). 22 pages.
