Advances in State-level Crime and Victimization Surveys: Lessons from the Oregon Crime Victimization Survey

Event Date
Thursday, July 29, 2021, 03:00PM


State and local crime victimization surveys can yield powerful data for estimating the prevalence and incidence of victimization. However, a significant challenge remains for researchers seeking to identify the most valid, reliable, and cost-effective methods for sampling households and gathering survey responses. This webinar describes the use of three alternative forms of sampling and data collection modes using Oregon’s first statewide crime victimization survey as an illustration. The Oregon Crime Victimization Survey (OCVS) applied a mixed-mode data collection strategy combining computer-assisted telephone interviews (CATI) with a “text-to-web” option and mail “push-to-web” approach. This allows for the direct comparison of three distinct samples and modes of data collection (i.e., random-digit dialing (RDD) CATI, RDD text-to-web, and address-based sampling (ABS) web) on crime victimization estimates, sampling error, response rates, efficiency, and costs. This webinar discusses the potential advantages and implications of a dual-frame and multimode approach and the importance of methodological choice for obtaining state-level crime victimization estimates.
