National Survey of Children's Exposure to Violence
The National Survey of Children's Exposure to Violence (NatSCEV) is a comprehensive nationwide survey of the incidence and prevalence of children's exposure to violence. It measures past-year and lifetime exposure to violence for children age 17 and younger across several major categories: conventional crime, child maltreatment, victimization by peers and siblings, sexual victimization, witnessing and indirect victimization, school violence and threats, and Internet victimization.
