DearCustomer/p>

Victimology is the study of why, when and how certain people will become a crime victim. These studies are based on demographics ie income levels, race, gender. These studies also cover things like natural disasters, traffic accidents as well as consumer crimes ie ID theft.

Unlike criminology, sociology and psychology, victimology uses all the methods and information of the social and psycholocial studies - while socialogy studies the behavioral aspects, criminology the criminal behavior and psychology is the mental aspects - all of these mediums are applied in victimology.
