BJS Releases the National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS) Dashboard (N-DASH)

The NCVS Dashboard (N-DASH), a dynamic analysis tool, allows you to examine National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS) data on both personal and property victimization, by select victim, household, and incident characteristics.

Based on BJS’s National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS), the N-DASH is the first of its kind at BJS. This dynamic analysis tool allows users to examine NCVS data on both personal and property victimization, by select victim, household, and incident characteristics. The N-DASH modernizes public access to NCVS data in a new, interactive online data visualization dashboard. The N-DASH replaces and enhances the core functionality of the previous NCVS Victimization Analysis Tool (NVAT), increases the speed of conducting analyses, contains new data elements, and provides capability for custom graphics and other modern visualization features. The dashboard provides direct and user-friendly access to the largest collection of data on criminal victimization in the United States, beginning in 1993.

The NCVS is the nation’s primary source of information on criminal victimization. It is an annual data collection sponsored by BJS. The NCVS collects information from a nationally representative sample of U.S. households on nonfatal crimes, reported and not reported to the police, against persons age 12 or older.

The N-DASH was created by BJS Statisticians Grace Kena, Erika Harrell, and Alexandra Thompson, in partnership with staff from RTI International under award number 2020-85-CX-K017. BJS Lead Information Technology Specialist John Popham provided additional technical support.
