"Presents estimates of national levels and rates of personal and property victimization for the year 2005. Rates and levels are provided for personal and property victimization by victim characteristics, type of crime, victim-offender relationship, use of weapons, and reporting to police. Annual average victimization rates for 2004-05 are compared with those of the previous two years, 2002-03. A section is devoted to trends in victimization from 1993 to 2005. Estimates are from data collected using the National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS), an ongoing survey of households that interviews about 134,000 persons in 77,200 households annually." From the errata published June 16, 2011: "The estimates published in the Criminal Victimization, 2005 bulletin were calculated using incorrect sampling weights. Base weights for non-self-representing primary sampling units were adjusted to more accurately represent the 2000 sample design. The corrected weights resulted in relatively small revisions to estimates of victimization counts and rates."
