Violent Crime in Massachusetts (July 2009)
Group: Executive Office of Public Safety and Security Research and Policy Analysis Division
The purpose of this Annual Policy Brief is to increase public awareness of the nature and prevalence of violent crime in the Commonwealth by analyzing data over a 25-year period from 1988 to 2012. The state data presented in this report is also examined within the context of national trends during the same timeframe. The four major offense classifications that are used to measure violent crime are murder, forcible rape, robbery, and aggravated assault. Aggravated assault includes all assault sub-categories (assault; assault by gun; assault by knife; assault by blunt object; and assault by hands/fist) except simple assault.
