The majority of respondents, approximately 85,982, will be administered only the screening portion of the SVS which are designed to filter out those people who have not been victims of repetitive harassing or unwanted contacts and therefore are not eligible to continue with the remainder of the supplement questions. We estimate the average length of the SVS interview for these individuals will be three minutes. The complement of this group of respondents is those who had such contacts. Due to the rarity of this type of crime, we expect only about 1 percent or 868 of the respondents to report being a victim of this type of behavior within the 12 months preceding the interview. We estimate each of these interviews will take 0.167 hours (10 minutes) to complete.
