Number of violent crime victims in the United States from 2005 to 2017, by gender

Number of violent crime victims in the United States, by gender 2005-2017 In 2017, the number of male and female violent crime victims was about even, with about 1,551,030 male victims and 1,555,310 female victims. In a disturbing trend, however, the number of male violent crime victims in the U.S. has been decreasing since 2005, but the number of female victims has been increasing.
What counts as violent crime?

Violent crime in the United States includes murder, rape, sexual assault, robbery, and assault. While violent crime across all areas has been steadily falling over the past few decades, the rate of aggravated assault is still relatively high, at 248.9 cases per 100,000 of the population. In 2017, there were more property crimes committed in the U.S. than there were violent crimes.

Keep your enemies closer

It is usually said that most victims know their attacker, and the data backs this up. In 2017, very few murders were committed by strangers. The same goes for rape and sexual assault victims; the majority were perpetrated by acquaintances, intimate partners, or relatives.
