Document Number: 4075Students' Reports of School Crime: 1989 and 1995 - This report is the first focusing on data collected in the 1995 School Crime Supplement, an enhancement to the National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS). The NCVS is an ongoing household survey that gathers information on the criminal victimization of household members age 12 and older. While this report does not cover all the items in the dataset, it covers those pertinent to school crime. These include: victimization, drug availability, street gangs and guns at school. In this report, victimization is in terms of prevalence as opposed to counts of events. In other words, the report focuses on the percent of students who have been victimized one or more times.
