Abstract

Presents estimates of nonfatal violent victimization (rape, sexual assault, robbery, and aggravated assault and simple assault) against persons age 12 or older with disabilities from 2009 to 2013. Tables compare the victimization of persons with and without disabilities living in noninstitutionalized households, including distributions by age, sex, race, Hispanic origin, victims' types of disabilities, and other victim characteristics. Tables also include information on victimoffender relationship, time of crime, reporting to police, and use of victim service agencies. Findings are based on the National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS), and data from the U.S. Census Bureau's American Community Survey (ACS) were used to generate victimization rates.
