On September 27, 2023, the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) will recognize the 50th anniversary of the National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS). Join in person or virtually for a morning session in the Great Hall at the U.S. Department of Justice and an afternoon session in the Main Conference Room at the Bureau of Justice Statistics, Office of Justice Programs. Panelists and speakers will include selected federal leaders, nationally recognized criminal justice researchers, practitioner leaders, and NCVS subject matter experts.    

The morning session will focus on the importance of the NCVS in informing criminal justice policies; the relevance of the NCVS in the federal statistical system; research using the NCVS; and the past, present, and future use of the survey. The afternoon session will focus on innovations to the NCVS over the decades; what they have learned from the survey on crime and victimization; and the outcome of research using the NCVS on critical topics, such as reporting to police, domestic violence, identity theft, and hate crime.

Celebrating this milestone affirms BJS's continuing commitment to providing reliable statistics on crime and victimization to inform policies and programs to combat crime, support victims, and reform and strengthen the criminal and juvenile justice system.
