This is more up to date, spanning from 2004-2008. This study states that 1/3 of all violent crime takes place in or near the victim's home.

This is another study that is more recent (2003) which also shows that most violent crime occurs away from home.

Perhaps the word "far" is an exaggeration. The spirit of my point still stands - that you are more likely to be victim of a violent crime away from home.
