dc.description Report en_US
dc.description.abstract This report provides statistics from the National Census of Victim Service Providers (VSPs), the first national data collection on the number and characteristics of these organizations. The census was conducted by BJS with support from the Office for Victims of Crime. The report describes the types of organizations that served victims, maps their locations, and reports on the rate of VSPs per 100,000 U.S. residents by state. Highlights: Almost 90% of VSPs were non-profit or faith-based organizations (45%) or governmental agencies with staff or programs to serve crime victims (43%). Most governmental VSPs operated in prosecutors' offices (18% of all VSPs) or law enforcement agencies (15%). Hospital, medical, or emergency facilities with dedicated victim programs made up 3% of VSPs. About 2% of VSPs were located in tribal organizations. About 2% of VSPs were located on university or college campuses or in other educational institutions. (Author Abstract) en_US
