In 2004 South Africa participated for the fourth time since 1993 in the International Crime (Victim) Survey (ICVS). A brief overview of the history and objectives of the ICVS is given to orientate readers in terms of the ICVS, its objectives and scope. This is followed by an overview of the South African crime situation in general. Thereafter, the methodology, sample characteristics of the respondents and results of the fourth ICVS that was conducted in Johannesburg, South Africa are analysed and described. Specific attention is paid to overall crime risks, the underreporting of crime and the way in which these results compare with previous surveys in the same area.
