"This report details the number, percentage, and demographic characteristics of victims who experienced one or more incidents of identity theft during a 12-month period. It focuses on the most recent incident and describes: how victims discovered the crime; financial losses and other consequences of identity theft, including the amount of time victims spent resolving associated problems; reporting the incident to credit card companies, credit bureaus, and law enforcement agencies; the level of distress experienced by victims of identity theft. The report uses data from the 2016 Identity Theft Supplement (ITS) to the National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS). From January to June 2016, the ITS collected data from persons about their experience with identity theft during the 12 months preceding the interview."--Page 3.
