Violent Crime and Victim's Gender 2002: An Examination of Differences in correlates of Male and Female Nonfatal Violent Victimization in the State of Illinois, 2002

 Issuing Agency:  Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority 0032
 Description:  Three research questions are examined in this report. First, do individual- and household-level correlates of nonfatal victimization differ between males and females? Second, do these correlates differ between males and females across several types of nonfatal violence? And third, do individual- and household-level predictors of nonfatal victimization across victim and offender relationships differ for males and females? To address these questions, Illinois Crime Victimization Survey (ICVS) data were used. The purpose of the ICVS is to ascertain the nature and extent of statewide and regional crime victimization in Illinois. Analyses were conducted using the ICVS data provided by the Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority (ICJIA). These data were collected using the Illinois Crime Victimization Survey (ICVS) which measured the nature and extent of statewide and regional crime victimization in Illinois during 2002. Recoding and verification tasks were conducted using Statistical Software for the Social Sciences (SPSS), and correlation matrices and logistic regressions were performed using Stata. Analyses offered valuable information about differences in predictors of violence for males and females, including differences by crime type and by victim and offender relationship.
