dc.description.abstract In 2017, the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute (ICJI) conducted its second Indiana Crime Victimization Survey (ICVS). The purpose of this project was to collect data that could complement other available crime data (for example, the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Uniform Crime Reporting Program ) and to provide a point of comparison to a similar victimization survey conducted in 2011. Data for the ICVS were collected using a vendor, the Glengariff Group, Inc., to obtain telephone responses from randomly selected adult Indiana residents about criminal victimizations during calendar year 2016 across the offense categories of property crime, violent crime, stalking and intimidation, and identity theft. The survey also asked respondents whether they reported any victimizations to the police and if the respondents could recall their relationships to the offender(s). Results were analyzed to determine general statewide victimization rates by demographic groups…This report provides an overview of the 2016 Indiana Crime Victimization Survey findings. Over one-third of respondents experienced a violent crime, property crime, stalking or intimidation, or identity theft at least once during calendar year 2016. Just over five percent of survey respondents were the victim of a break-in or attempted break-in into a home, garage, shed, or other building. Just over one percent of respondents stated they or someone in their household were the victims of the theft of a motor vehicle. Over seven percent of respondents stated they or a member of their household were a victim of vandalism or destruction of property in 2016. Just over one percent of respondents stated that in 2016 they were a victim of battery by a non-family member. Three percent of respondents stated they were the victim of domestic violence in 2016. Over eight percent of respondents stated they experienced some sort of stalking or intimidation during 2016. Less than one percent of respondents stated they were the victim of the use or threat of violence, verbal threats, or the use of a weapon to engage in unwanted sexual acts. Just over fifteen percent of respondents stated that somebody used or attempted to use their credit card without permission. [CVRL Note: appendix includes survey instrument.] (Author Text) en_US
