Methodological Notes: 

Violent crimes included are rape/sexual assault, robbery, aggravated assault, and simple assault. This measure does not include murder. 

Due to methodological inconsistencies between the NCVS data for 2006 and the data for other years, the estimates for 2006 are omitted from the graphing utility. More information about the National Crime Victimization Survey is available from the Bureau of Justice Statistics.
