Criminal victimization in seventeen industrialized countries

Key findings from the 2000 International Crime Victims Survey

Samenvatting

The International Crime Victimisation Survey (ICVS) is the most far-reaching programma of fully standardised sample surveys looking at householders’ experience of crime in different countries. The first ICVS took place in 1989, the second in 1992, the third in 1996 and the fourth in 2000. Surveys have been carried out in 24 industrialised countries since 1989, and in 46 cities in developing countries and countries in transition. This report deals with seventeen industrialised countries which took part in the 2000 ICVS.
The results in this report relate mainly to respondents’ experience of crime in 1999, the year prior to the 2000 survey. Those interviewed were asked about crimes they had experienced, whether or not reported to the police.
