Seniors as Victims of Crime

"Using data from  self-reported victimization and police-reported surveys, this profile examines  the nature and prevalence of violent and property crimes against seniors. The  report also examines characteristics of offences committed against seniors,  such as the level of reporting to the police, the proportion of incidents  involving weapons and the proportion of incidents causing injuries to the victim.  Furthermore, information on seniors’ fear of crime, the prevalence of spousal  abuse as well as seniors’ risk of telemarketing fraud is also presented."
