The Second National Juvenile Online Victimization Study (NJOV-2) was conducted in 2007-2008 and designed to update and expand upon the First National Juvenile Online Victimization Study (NJOV-1) conducted in 2001-2002. Researchers collected information from a national sample of more than 2,500 law enforcement agencies about Internet sex crimes against minors during 2006, providing detailed information about the types of Internet sex crimes, as well as numbers of arrests, characteristics of offenders and victims, dynamics of the crimes, and criminal justice system responses. Data, which are weighted to provide national estimates, were collected via mail surveys followed by telephone interviews with investigators about specific cases reported in the mail surveys.
