Bureau of Justice Statistics Special Report: National Crime Victimization Suvrey, 1995-2000, Violent Victimization of College Students   [open pdf - 235KB]

This special report from the Bureau of Justice Statistics discusses the rates of robbery, aggravated assault and violent crime among college students between 1995 and 2000. From the report: "On average between 1995 and 2000, college students were victims of about 526,000 crimes of violence annually: rape/sexual assault, robbery, aggravated assault, and simple assault. Of these violent crimes, an average of about 128,120 per year involved a weapon or serious injury to the victim. Over the same years college students experienced violent crimes at a lower average per capita rate than nonstudents (68 and 82 victimizations per 1,000 persons age 18-24). (For this report 'nonstudents', like 'students', were persons age 18-24, but 'nonstudents' were not enrolled full or part time in a college or university.) Similarly, students sustained serious violent crime -- rape, robbery, and aggravated assault -- at a lower rate than did nonstudents (25 and 34 victimizations per 1,000 persons, respectively)."
