New Data Brief: “New Report Examines Student Victimization at U.S. Public Schools”
The following data brief was published today by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES).
From an NCES Summary:
Nearly 3 percent of students, ages 12-18, reported that they were the victims of crime at school in the previous six months, according to results from a 2015 survey. During school year 2014-15, these students reported being bullied at school at more than twice the rate (51.1 percent) of the students who reported not being victims of crime (20.0 percent).
The National Center for Education Statistics released a new report today entitled Student Victimization in U.S. Schools: Results From the 2015 School Crime Supplement to the National Crime Victimization Survey today. This report contains estimates of student criminal and bullying victimization at school by selected student characteristics and school conditions; reports of bullying victimization and other indicators of school disorder; school security measures; and student avoidance behavior.
This Statistics in Brief report uses data collected in the 2015 School Crime Supplement to the National Crime Victimization Survey, which is co-designed by NCES and the Bureau of Justice Statistics.
