The National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS) relies on a complicated survey instrument and complex sample design. The multiple data files and different sets of survey weights can initially be challenging to use. The Analyzing Data from the National Crime Victimization Survey workshop will introduce potential data users to the types of information available through the NCVS, offer an overview of the survey structure and sample design, and provide hands-on training to assist in properly analyzing the NCVS public-use data.

Using SPSS, participants will learn how to replicate key estimates published through the annual Criminal Victimization bulletin and available through the NCVS Dashboard (N-DASH). The course will also provide information on analyzing the available NCVS supplement data files, and it will highlight different types of research questions that can be addressed with the core and supplement data.
