The National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS) Knowledge Corner provides quick tips and explanations for NCVS data users on a variety of topics. In this video, BJS Statistician Rachel Morgan, PhD, focuses on weighting the NCVS data. She briefly discusses sample weights and focuses primarily on NCVS-specific weights that need to be applied to the NCVS data to make the data representative of the U.S. population of households or persons age 12 or older.
