Number of violent crime victims per 1,000 persons, by age group and sex: Selected years, 1995 through 2008

NOTE: Violent crimes include rape, sexual assault, robbery, aggravated assault, and simple assault. Violent crimes exclude murder because the National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS) is based on interviews with victims and therefore cannot measure murder.
