Stalking is a complex social phenomenon which can take on many different forms. In this article, efforts are made to reduce the multiplicity of heterogeneous patterns of stalking victimization to a small number of distinct victimization profiles. Based on a survey of Austrian stalking victims, a typology of stalking profiles is developed that reflects the different phenotypes of stalking victimization in terms of the behavioural components of the incidents. A latent class analysis identifies four types of stalking victimization that differ significantly in their determinants and their impact on the victim's well-being and quality of life.
