STUDY: OLDER AMERICANS AVOID CRIME
Based on data from the Justice Departments Bureau of Justice Statistics, there were an average of 5.3 violent crimes for every 1,000 US residents age 65 or older each year from 1992 to 1997. The Justice Department reported that violent criminals attack Americans age 65 or older far less often than younger men and women, most likely because older people do not go out at night as much.
