Findings are presented from the 2017 National Census of Victim Service Providers (NCVSP), the first nationwide data collection on VSPs, which asked organizations whether they had served crime victims in the 6 months prior to the survey (October 2016 – July 2017), VSP location, and type of organization.
This report provides statistics from the National Census of Victim Service Providers, the first national data collection on the number and characteristics of these organizations. The report describes the types of organizations that serve victims, maps their locations, and reports on the rate of victim service providers per 100,000 U.S. residents by state. The census was conducted by the Bureau of Justice Statistics with support from OVC.
