Bureau of Justice Statistics and National Center for Education Statistics collaborated in order to provide source material for the statistical section of the Annual Report on School Safety: 1998. The annual report includes national school crime data, successful strategies to reduce school violence, and a local safety checklist for parents. Indicators of School Crime and Safety, 1998 presents data on crime at school from the perspectives of students, teachers, principals, and the general population, using a comprehensive array of sources--the National Crime Victimization Survey (1992-96), Monitoring the Future (1976-96), the Youth Risk Behavior Survey (1993, 1995, and 1997), the National Household Education Survey (1993), and the School and Staffing Survey (1993-94). 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.
