Criminal victimization of the population in the countries with transient economy


A methodology of carrying out the cross-national victimological researches is considered. The opinion poll data on the victims of crimes in the countries with transient economy which were held in the framework of the International Crime Victim Surveys are analyzed. On the basis of data of the European Social Survey, a model which reveals the rules among the socio-demographic groups of persons which suffer, less or more, from crimes is constructed.
