Kaufman, P., Chen, X., Choy, S., Peter, K., Ruddy, S. A., Miller, A. K., ... Rand, M. R. (2001). Indicators of school crime and safety, 2001 (NCES 2002-113/NCJ-190075). Washington, DC: U.S. Departments of Education and Justice.


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 (1992-99), the School Crime Supplement to the National Crime Victimization Survey (1989, 1995 and 1999), the Youth Risk Behavior Survey (1993, 1995, 1997 and 1999), and the School and Staffing Survey (1993-94). A joint effort by the Bureau of Justice Statistics and National Center for Education Statistics, the report examines crime occurring in school as well as on the way to and from school. Data for crime away from school are also presented to place school crime in the context of crime in the larger society. The report provides the most current detailed statistical information to inform the Nation on the nature of crime in schools.
