Key Statistics

Key Statistics is a new feature on this website. It provides easy access to trend data from BJS's core data collections. Victimization key statistics include counts and rates from 1993 through 2014 of violent crime (robbery, aggravated assault, and simple assault), property crime (burglary, motor vehicle theft, and property theft), domestic violence, intimate partner violence, and serious violent crime involving injury or weapons. It also includes data on violent and property crime reported and not reported to police. Future Key Statistics releases will cover topics such as law enforcement, courts, employment and expenditure, and background checks and firearm sales. Each Key Statistic includes a description, table, and graph, along with links to related information on the website, such as publications that include the statistics, data sources, and any available data analysis tools.
