Older Adult Multiple Segment Analysis
Research Question 3: Does the offender age differ by victim-offender relationship for older adult and younger victims of robbery?
The data source for this research question is the 1996 NIBRS hierarchical data file. There were 1,487 agencies in nine states reporting during 1996. The file used for the analysis of this question is an incident-level aggregated flat file, created by combining multiple segments of data. (See Creating an Incident-Level Aggregate Flat File for a detailed explanation of this process.)
Variables from the following segments were used: administrative, victim, offender,
offense, arrest, and property. Although these six segments were used, not all variables
from all segments were needed for this analysis. For this research question, the victim
segment is matched to the offender segment to analyze the victim-offender interaction.
