This publication provides the most recent national indicators on school crime and safety. These indicators demonstrate that sizable improvements have occurred in the safety of students: between 1992 and 2001, the violent crime victimization rate at school declined from 48 violent victimizations per 1,000 students in 1992 to 20 such victimizations in 2001. This report provides detailed statistical information to inform the nation on the current status of crime in schools. The 2003 edition of Indicators included the most recent available data, including 2001 data and newly released data from the 2000 School Survey on Crime and Safety, a survey of our nation's public schools.
