Levy's "you don't have to be Jewish to enjoy Levy's bread" campaign may seem a bit cringeworthy today, but back in the s', it was rare for non-WASPS in the media, including wide reaching ad campaigns like this one, to be not featured as a racist caricature. Today, we have Hebrew National's hot dog commercials, reminding Gentile consumers that "they" are "really choosy about what goes in. Anime and Manga Often noted in the case of Osamu Tezuka that, while the content of some of his work is offensive by modern standards, he was actually a very enlightened writer for his time and would likely appreciate the more open minded nature of today's society.

Such insights were made possible by the development of population-based victimization surveys in the late s and early s.
The availability of victim survey data also permits a better understanding of the nature and consequences of crime because there is much more information about the experience. The study of victimization patterns typically involves assessments of the relationships between individual, family, and community characteristics regarding the risk for property or violent crime victimization.
Trends in crime based on survey data are often studied in conjunction with trends derived from police records because most crime does not come to the attention of the police, and because police departments may not record all incidents that come to their attention or participate in national police reporting systems.

General assessments of victimization patterns and correlates are not often updated because the data suggest that the basic patterns change very slowly over time. In addition, the study of victimization patterns is often specialized according to type of crime or victim.
In particular, the victimization of children and women tends to be studied separately from other forms of criminal victimization, and, as such, each has its own specialized literature and theories.
