Choi empirically assesses a computer-crime victimization model by applying Routine Activities Theory (RAT). He tests the components of RAT via structural equation modeling to assess the existence of any statistical significance between individual online lifestyles, the levels of computer security, and levels of individual computer-crime victimization. A self-report survey, which contained multiple measures of the risk factors and computer-crime victimization, was administered to 204 college students to gather data to test the model. The findings provide empirical supports for the components of RAT by delineating patterns of computer-crime victimization.
