Rates of School Crime

Through nearly two decades of steady decline, the nonfatal victimization rate for 12- to 18-year-old students at school fell from 181 per 1,000 students in 1992 to 35 per 1,000 in 2010; however, the rate was higher in 2012 (52 per 1,000). The victimization rate away from school for these students followed a similar pattern.
