Title: The risks of nonfatal violent victimizations across individual-and structural-level characteristics

Abstract: The purpose of this study is to examine the impact of individual characteristics and structural conditions on non-fatal violent victimization risks. Using the criminological theories known Routine Activities/The Lifestyle Model and Social Disorganization Theory, each provided explanations how and why crime and victimization are linked to individual and environmental factors; however, it is unclear whether each set of characteristics are a better rationalization for crime and thus victimization. Using data derived from the NCVS 12 Cities survey, the study will analyze whether individual characteristics or structural characteristics are better predictors of victimization risks.
