Stalking is a specific type of these general behaviors. Bennett and Hess (2007) define a stalker as someone who "intentionally and repeatedly follows, attempts to contact, harasses, and/or intimidates another person." The vast majority of stalking cases emerge out of a preexisting relationship. About 81% of stalking cases involve some prior acquaintance, and approximately 90% of all murders (committed by husbands or boyfriends) involve stalking prior to the murders (Bennett & Hess 2007:352). Over 1 million women are stalked in the United States each year (Wood and Wood (2002:1). In terms of prior relationships: 79% involved intimate but nonromantic relationships, 44% represent romantically involved relationships, 28% involved acquaintances, 24% were service-related (e.g., counselor, instructor, police), 14% were colleagues of some sort (e.g., classmate, coworker), and 13% were neighbors. These figures a re derived from Spitzberg, Button & Kim (2012), who analyzed over 10,000 cases, and also looked at same-sex stalking (gay men; lesbians and bisexuals) but found little evidence (<8%) of its frequency aside from the fact that it does occur. Schmalleger (2002) cites that only 2% of men report having been stalked by a female at some time in their lives.
Race/ethnicity plays a role in stalking, at least among those who report the crime to police. Native American women are the most likely to report a suspected stalking case, and Hispanic women are the least likely to report their suspicions. Non-Hispanics ( both white and black) report in about equal numbers. Stalking is primarily an intra-racial offense. Most victims are between the ages of 18 and 24, and the average age of a stalker is 20. Most stalkers are one to two years younger than their victims. The exception is bullying, which typically involves an offender one or two years older than the victim. Poor people tend to be stalked more than rich people, but alcohol/drug history and place of residence (e.g., living alone) tend to overshadow this income factor. Perpetrators are typically unemployed, so they have lots of time to invest in their stalking activities. Among serial stalkers (multiple victims across time), the average cooling off period is one year. However, serial stalkers are not the most common variety; the most common types are concurrent stalkers (multiple victims within same time frame) and sequential (recidivist) stalkers (same victim over a time period marked by inactivity usually caused by legal intervention to make it stop). Stalkers are persistent, and the majority of them (54%) have some prior criminal history.
