Note: Many incident characteristics were unaffected or minimally affected by changes in methodology in the 2006 National Crime Victimization Survey.
However, caution should be used in comparing 2006 rates of individual variables, particularly those with small sample sizes, to previous years.
See Criminal Victimization, 2006, at <http://www.ojp.usdoj.gov/bjs/abstract/cv06.htm>.
Responses for weapons use are tallied once, based upon a hierarchy.
*Estimate is based on 10 or fewer sample cases.
...Not applicable.
a/Includes verbal threats of rape and threats of sexual assault.
b/Simple assault, by definition, does not involve the use of a weapon.
