Bureau of Justice Statistics Releases Report on Co-Offending Among Adolescents in Violent Victimizations

July 20, 2016

The Bureau of Justice Statistics has released “Co-Offending Among Adolescents in Violent Victimizations, 2004–13." This report presents estimates of nonfatal violent victimizations that adolescents ages 12 to 17 committed during 2004–13. This report compares the characteristics of violent victimizations that adolescents committed acting alone, with other adolescents, and with young adults ages 18 to 29. The report highlights victim, offender, and incident characteristics, including type of crime, weapon use, victim injury, and whether the incident was reported to the police. The findings are based on data from the National Crime Victimization Survey.
