Summary.  We consider the association between victimization and offending behaviour by using data from the Youth Lifestyles Survey. We consider the effect of violent and non‐violent offending on the probability of being a victim of violent and non‐violent crime and find a positive association between these by using univariate probit estimates. However, taking into account the endog‐ enous nature of offending and victimization via a bivariate probit model, we find that univariate estimates…

Criminal Victims, Victimized Criminals, or Both? an Econometric Analysis of the Victim‐offender Overlap

Economic Factors of Victimization: Evidence from Germany
Abstract Victimization is a poorly studied topic in economic research. This paper considers economic factors of victimization using individual data. It tests the rationalchoice- based hypothesis that
Immigration Status and Victimization: Evidence from the British Crime Survey
This study, using data from the British Crime Survey (BCS), examines the microrelationship between immigration and victimization. We first find that, although immigrants are more likely to suffer
An Analysis of the Relationship between Victimization and Violent Behavior at School
Results supported Emler's theory, which posits that the victim’s helplessness in situations of intimidation, along with disappointment resulting from a lack of expected protection from adult authority figures, may result in adolescents searching and developing an antisocial and non-conformist reputation that helps them defend themselves against future attacks.
Fear of Crime and Victimization
This study models simultaneously three commonly used indicators of fear of crime — feeling unsafe alone at home after dark, feeling unsafe walking alone after dark and worry about becoming a victim
Associations between Risky Lifestyles and Involvement in Violent Crime during Adolescence
ABSTRACT Research shows that violent victimization and offending often overlap, and that both outcomes may be related to a risky lifestyle. The author therefore aimed to examine the associations


The Phenomena of Multiple Victimization. The Relationship between Personal and Property Crime Risk
Recent research has been concerned with repeat victimization. In this paper, we focus on another form of multiple victimization-multiple crime-type victimization (MCV); that is, the extent to which
Deviant Lifestyles, Proximity to Crime, and the Offender-Victim Link in Personal Violence
