Data from the National Crime Victimization Survey, including approximately 200,000 interviews annually, were used to examine the trends in nonfatal, serious violence from 1994 through 2001. Firearms violence declined 15% over the time period. Young, Black, urban males experienced similar proportions of nonfatal firearm violence from 1994-2001. Young, White, non-urban males experienced a 47% decline in nonfatal firearm violence. Young, White, urban females experienced a 65% increase in nonfatal firearm violence.
