National statistics on youth victimization

The National Survey of Children’s Exposure to Violence (NatSCEV) is the largest, most comprehensive survey on youth victimization conducted in the United States. NatSCEV shows that many youth experience multiple forms of victimization, not just single types. The Juvenile Victimization Questionnaire-2nd Revision (JVQ-R2) is the core of NatSCEV. The full JVQ-R2, including supplements, assesses 50+ forms of victimization across five general areas:

Conventional crime
Maltreatment
Peer and sibling victimization
Sexual victimization
Witnessing and other exposure to violence.
