In episode 2, Into the Weeds: Measuring Silence, Alexa and Alissa talk about the major sources of counting sexual crimes that occur in the United States. The compare two major data sources and discuss some of the benefits and shortfalls of each.
In this episode we utilize data from the following sources (each bullet point is hyperlinked):
- The Uniform Crime Report
- The National Crime Victimization Survey
- The National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey
An additional resource we did not use in the episode related to child neglect, abuse and maltreatment is the National Child Abuse and Neglect Data System (NCANDS).
