Description

This report provides estimates of criminal incidents that occur at school. Incident-level data were obtained from the National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS), the nation’s primary source of information on criminal victimization and criminal incidents in the United States. The NCVS collects demographic information on respondents in the NCVS Basic Screen Questionnaire (NCVS-1), and data on the characteristics of criminal incidents are collected in the NCVS Crime Incident Report (NCVS-2).

In order to reach a sample size that was large enough to allow the reporting of estimates that meet the National Center for Education Statistics’ (NCES) statistical standards, it was necessary to pool three NCVS data years to derive the estimates presented in this report. Estimates of criminal incidents at school provided in this report are from the most recently available, concatenated, incident-level data file and include data years 2003, 2004, and 2005. Incidents that were included in this analysis occurred inside the school building, on school property, or on the way to or from school, and were reported by respondents ages 12 through 18 attending middle and high school. While there may be variation in incidents across geographic location or categories of urbanicity, this report does not explore those possibilities.
