Older Adult Victim Analysis

Two older adult victim research questions are presented to demonstrate the use of NIBRS. Each example includes a written summary of the research question and supporting data as well as the syntax for generating the data set necessary to answer the research question.

Research Question 1: For which violent crimes perpetrated in residential settings are adults aged 65 or older more likely than people aged 64 or younger to be victimized?

Research Question 2: For violent person crimes, when is the victimization of a person aged 65 or older in a residential setting most likely to occur?

One older adult victim research question is presented to demonstrate the use of multiple segment analysis.  The example includes a written summary of the research question and supporting data as well as the syntax for generating the data set necessary to answer the research question. 

Research Question 3: Does the offender age differ by victim-offender relationship for older adult and younger victims of robbery?
