dc.description.abstract This report from the Bureau of Justice Statistics presents data on crimes against persons with disabilities for the period 2009 through 2012. This report was developed by the U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) with data obtained from the BJS’s National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS). The data pertains to crimes against persons with disabilities for the period 2009 through 2012. The NCVS describes a person with disabilities as someone with limited interaction between their bodies and their physical, emotional, and mental health, and the physical and social environment in which they live. This report contains statistical tables on the level and rates of nonfatal violent victimization against persons with and without disabilities; the types of disabilities; and victim characteristics. Highlights of the findings include the following: in 2012, violent victimization was nearly three times higher for persons with disabilities compared to persons without disabilities; persons aged 16 to 19 with disabilities had violent victimization rates about 2.5 times higher than their peers without disabilities; in 2012, rape or sexual assault, robbery, and aggravated assault accounted for about 38 percent of nonfatal violent crime against persons with disabilities; and females with disabilities were the victims of violence at a rate slightly higher than the rate (62 percent) than males with disabilities (59 percent). The report also includes information on how the data was collected, definitions of disability types, and limitations of the estimates. (NCJRS Abstract) en_US
