Crime Victimization in Illinois: The Citizens' Perspective. Special Series 4.
Burdge, Rabel J.; And Others
Data from a survey of Illinois residents are used in this report to determine the extent and distribution of crime in the State. Specific areas addressed include: (1) the extent of two types of crime, violent crime and property crime, and which is the more predominant; (2) whether crime in Illinois is an urban or rural problem: (3) social characteristics of the victims (young or old, male or female, rich or poor, white or nonwhite, house or apartment dwellers); and (4) how victimization rates vary geographically. Data obtained from the survey relating to each of these areas are presented and discussed. Appendices provide details of the survey methods and a profile of respondents. (EB)
