I have recently been looking for primary source material, surveys, case studies etc on what actually happens during criminal violence. I can find a lot of people talking about what happens but the best of that material seems to be from police and is based on experience rather than true data. And SO much of the rest of what is available is people talking about limited personal experience and is some cases just parroting back things they were told by others. My class is occasionally asked to teach self protection (to local women/teens groups for the most part) and I want to accurately reflect the differences between social, asocial, and domestic violence. So I am trying to find the data in as raw a form as I can so that I let the data speak to me rather as much as possible.
I have been able to locate the BJS which has a lot of data related to preverlance rates for attackers, victims, locations, etc. But it is very limited on descriptions of the actual encounters, which attacks are most common etc.
