- Fifty-seven percent (57%) of juvenile offenders' violent crime victims were under age 18, compared to 11% of adult offenders' victims.
- Because 78% of all victims of violent crime were victimized by adult offenders, the age profiles for all victims and for victims of adult offenders were very similar.
