National Center for Education Statistics
A joint effort by the Bureau of Justice Statistics and National Center for Education Statistics, this annual report examines crime occurring in school as well as on the way to and from school. It provides the most current detailed statistical information to inform the Nation on the nature of crime in schools. This report presents data on crime at school from the perspectives of students, teachers, principals, and the general population from an array of sources--the National Crime Victimization Survey, the School Crime Supplement to the National Crime Victimization Survey, the Youth Risk Behavior Survey, the School Survey on Crime and Safety and the School and Staffing Survey. Data on crime away from school are also presented to place school crime in the context of crime in the larger society. A section on supplemental tables is provided. Two appendixes are included: (1) Technical Notes; and (2) Glossary of Terms. (Contains 45 tables, 44 figures, and 42 footnotes.) [For "Indicators of School Crime and Safety: 2008," see ED504994.]
