Factors of victimization survey: 1) income 2) age 3) gender 4) race 5) place of residence. Young people (ages 20 21) most likely to be victims of assault. After the age of 25 the chances of being assault drops (not only the elderly are the ones who get victimized). Same patter for crimes within households (theft from garage). Young people living in households are most likely to be victimized (half of them victimized every year burglary, break and enter, electronic and bike thefts from home). The victimization survey shows (both in canada and us) that males have higher overall rates of crime victimization over females. When looked at the combined effects of age and gender (for example young females more likely to be victimized than older males?) In order to measure this it is important to look at overall rates and differences and gender is important.
