This supplement to the National Crime Surveys was designed
to collect data on crime victimization in schools in the United States.
Student respondents were asked a series of questions to determine their
school attendance in the last six months. Other questions concerning
schools were posed, including type of school, distance from home, and
general attendance and monitoring policies. The data present
information on the response of the school to student violation of
rules, accessibility of drugs, and violence in school, including types
of violence and student reaction. Other variables cover general violent
crimes, personal larceny crimes, and household crimes and offer
information on date, time, and place of crime. Demographic
characteristics of household members such as age, sex, race, education,
employment, median family income, and marital status are provided.
