The Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) presents Crime and the Nation's Households, 2003, which features national estimates for the percentage of households with one or more persons victimized by crime as measured by the National Crime Victimization Survey. Information is provided on homes experiencing violent and property crimes, vandalism, and intimate partner violence. Findings are presented by race; region; type of location (urban, suburban, or rural); and household size. Overall trends since 1994 are included and comparisons with 2002 are made. Highlights include the following: between 2002 and 2003, the percentage of homes experiencing crimes (about 15 percent) did not change significantly; in 2003, about 3 in 1,000 households included a member victimized by an intimate partner, such as a current or former spouse, boyfriend, or girlfriend; and in 2003, about 1 in every 26 homes was either burglarized or had a member aged 12 or older who experienced a violent crime committed by a stranger.
