Recent research has been concerned with repeat victimization. In this paper, we focus on another form of multiple victimization—multiple crime-type victimization (MCV); that is, the extent to which some households or persons are victims of more than one kind of offence over a given period. First, we discuss three features of our present understanding of multiple victimization—repetition over time, specificity, and risk transmission. Second, we fit an appropriate multivariate statistical model to data taken from the 1992 British Crime Survey (BCS) in an effort to identify antecedents and correlates of MCV; and third, we discuss some of the implications of this analysis for a general understanding of crime victimization.
