Reports: Victimization

The 2016 Minnesota Crime Victimization Survey: Executive Summary and Overview
Minnesota Department of Public Safety Office of Justice Programs, August 2017, 18 pp.
The Minnesota Statistical Analysis Center (MNSAC), a part of the Department of Public Safety Office of Justice Programs (OJP), completed its seventh crime victimization survey. This survey measured experiences with crime, perceptions of neighborhood safety, and attitudes towards the police among Minnesota’s adult population. The Minnesota Crime Victimization Survey (MCVS) brings us closer to measuring the many crimes that never come to the attention of law enforcement, also known as the “dark figure of crime.” Surveys such as this also collect information on crime victims that is often not available in official crime statistics.   more info >
