1 in 4 violent crime victims known to law enforcement is a juvenile, and most juvenile victims are female Juvenile victims are common in violent crimes handled by law enforcement
Not all crimes committed are reported to law enforcement. Those that are reported can be used to produce the portrait of crime as seen by the nation’s justice system.

As noted earlier, based on the FBI’s Supplementary Homicide Reports, 10% of all persons murdered in 2002 were under age 18 and 36% of these murdered juveniles were female. No other data source with comparable population coverage characterizes the victims of other violent crimes reported to law enforcement. However, data from the National Incident- Based Reporting System (NIBRS) covering incidents in 2000 and 2001 capture information on more than 418,000 violent crime victims known to law enforcement in 22 states.

From these data, an arguably representative description of violent crime victims can be developed. Sexual assaults accounted for just over half of the juvenile victims of violent crime known to law enforcement Defining violent crime to include murder, violent sexual assault, robbery, and aggravated assault, NIBRS indicates that 26% of the victims of violent crime reported to law enforcement agencies in 2000 and 2001 were juveniles—persons under age 18. More specifically, juveniles were the victims in 10% of murders, 70% of sexual assaults, 11% of robberies, and 17% of aggravated assaults reported to law enforcement. Of all juvenile victims of violent crime known to law enforcement, fewer than one-half of 1% were murder victims, 8% were robbery victims, 39% were victims of aggravated assault, and 52% were victims of sexual
assault.
