1 Serious violent victimization is also included in violent victimization.
2 Due to methodological changes, use caution when comparing 2006 estimates to other years.
NOTE: "Serious violent victimization" includes rape, sexual assault, robbery, and aggravated assault. "Violent victimization" includes serious violent crimes and simple
assault. "Theft" includes purse-snatching, pickpocketing, and all attempted and completed thefts, with the exception of motor vehicle thefts. Theft does not include
robbery in which threat or use of force is involved. Robbery is classified as a violent crime. "Total victimization" includes violent crimes and theft. "At school"
includes inside the school building, on school property, or on the way to or from school. Although Indicators 2 and 3 present information on similar topics,
the survey sources for these two indicators differ with respect to time coverage and administration. For more information on these two surveys, please see
appendix A. Detail may not sum to total due to rounding. Estimates may vary from previously published reports Estimates of the number of crimes are rounded to the nearest
100.
