FARRELL, G. and BOULOUKOS, A.C., 2001. International overview : a cross-national comparison of rates of repeat victimization. Crime Prevention Studies, 12, pp. 5-25.
Research on repeat victimization to date has been at the local or national level, leaving skeptics room to argue that is is an isolated phenomenon. In this chapter, the rate of repeat victimization - the proportion of crimes that were repeated against the same persons or household - is compared across country and crime type for the1989, 1992 and 1996 sweeps of the International Crime Victims Survey (ICVS).
