Description
  • Abstract

    The purpose of the National Census of Victim Service Providers (NCVSP) is to describe the field of organizations or programs that are dedicated to serving victims of crime or abuse. The NCVSP collects characteristics about victim service providers (VSPs) over the past year, including the structure of the organization, the services the organization provided to victims, the availability of a hotline/helpline for victims, the types of crimes for which victims received services, the number of staff providing victim services, and current issues of concern to victim service providers. The information is intended for use by policymakers, practitioners at the Federal, state and local levels, academic researchers, and special interest groups to inform decisions related to victim services and the organizations that provide these services. The NCVSP also provides descriptive information about the full universe of organizations that provide crime victim services that can be used to develop representative samples for the National Survey of Victim Service Providers (NSVSP) and other VSP surveys.
  • Methods

    Response Rates: Of the total organizations that served victims in the past six months, 82% completed the NCVSP. Of the total 12,196 organizations that served victims as their primary function or with dedicated staff or programs in the past six months, 9,640 completed the NCVSP which translated into a 79% response rate.

Sampling
The National Census of Victim Service Providers (NCVSP) is a census designed to capture all civilian organizations or programs that are dedicated to serving victims of crime or abuse. The research team created a roster by gathering national, state, and local lists of organizations likely to be serving crime victims, including organizations funded by the federal government to provide victim services (e.g., Office for Victims of Crime and Office for Violence against Women grantees) and the National Center for Victims of Crime (NCVC) membership list. The final frame was comprised of a total of 12,196 victim service providers.
