Discussion 458

Given the sources of data from which we gain our understanding of victimization, which do you think might portray a more accurate picture of victimization? Why?

Go to Table 3.32 2008 on Estimated Percent Distribution of Personal and Property Incidents at http://www.albany.edu/sourcebook/pdf/t3322008.pdf. Choose to examine the statistical patterns of victimization by a crime in the table (e.g., rape/sexual assault, motor vehicle theft, etc.). Identify the place where victimization of the crime most frequently occurs. What victimization theory or its concept does this pattern support? Explain your choice, theory and reasoning clearly.

Only needs to be about 3 or 4 paragraphs
