Freeh said that Americans should take little comfort in the decline.The 23 percent victimization rate for 1992 was down from 24 percent in 1991 and 32 percent in 1975, the first year the survey was taken, the Justice Department found in its latest survey of households."Any reduction in crime that can be measured is obviously a positive result," Mr. Freeh said in an interview.
