National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS) Knowledge Corner – Weighting the Data
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. The NCVS data files include household, person, incident, and victimization weights. For more information, please visit https://bjs.ojp.gov/programs/ncvs or email us at [email protected].
