Victims can be found throughout all segments of any society. Understanding victims often requires categorizing them by common characteristics (e.g., location, social patterns, etc.). Select three different characteristics by which victims may be categorized. Define the unique characteristics that make a victim a member of each group. Compare and contrast the factors that are used to group these types of victims together. Discuss how grouping victims into these unique groups assists criminology researchers in understanding deviance from the perspective of those directly impacted by crime.
