The Impact of Race Differences in Criminal Victimization on Black and White Experience and Perception of Crime

Abstract:

We use the NCVS for 1998-2007 to look at race differences in victimization rates. Among reported personal victimizations, two thirds involve attempted victimizations while one third involves completed victimizations. There were no racial differences in attempted victimizations, whereas Blacks reported higher rates of actual victimizations. The majority of victimizations involved simple assaults and the rates of Blacks and Whites were identical. Blacks reported much higher victimization rates for robbery and aggravated assaults. Approximately three quarters of household crimes involve thefts and these were slightly more common among Whites. The number of burglary victimization experienced by Blacks was approximately 1.5 times that of Whites. Blacks had twice as many burglaries involving breaking and entering as Whites, whereas the racial differences with burglaries involving unlawful entry without force were modest. Blacks have a household rate of motor theft that is twice as high as Whites. We discuss the relevance of these data for understanding the lives of Blacks and Whites, how they experience their neighborhoods, and their respective fear of crime.
