Welcome to the Crime and Safety Surveys web site, where data and reports produced by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) on the topic of school crime and safety are centralized.

This site is organized by survey respondent, since surveys have been done from the perspectives of students, teachers, schools/principals, and school districts.

Currently, two surveys are being conducted on a regular basis by NCES: the School Survey on Crime and Safety (SSOCS), a survey of public schools/principals, and the School Crime Supplement (SCS) to the National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS), a survey of students ages 12 through 18.

Would you like to help us improve our products and website by taking a short survey?
