dc.description.abstract This study presents estimates of nonfatal violent victimization (rape, sexual assault, robbery, aggravated and simple assault) against persons age 12 or older with disabilities from 2009 to 2011. The report compares the victimization of persons with and without disabilities, including distributions by age, race, sex, victims' types of disabilities, and other victim characteristics. Results show that persons age 12 or older who had disabilities experienced about an annual average 923,000 nonfatal violent crimes during 2011. The rate of violence for males with disabilities was 42 per 1,000 in 2011, compared to 22 per 1,000 for males without disabilities. For females with disabilities, the rate of violence was 53 per 1,000 in 2011, compared to 17 per 1,000 for females without disabilities. No statistically significant difference was found in the average annual number of nonfatal violent victimizations against persons with disabilities from 2009 to 2011. Findings are based on the National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS). Data from the U.S. Census Bureau's American Community Survey (ACS) and the 2000 U.S. Standard Population were used to estimate age-adjusted victimization rates. (NCJRS Abstract) en_US
