Rate of nonfatal victimizations against students ages 12—18 per 1,000 students, by type of victimization and location: 1992—2010
1 Serious violent victimization is also included in violent victimization.
NOTE: Due to changes in the sample design and survey methodology in the 2006 National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS), use caution when comparing 2006 estimates to other years. For more information, please see appendix A. "Serious violent victimization" includes rape, sexual assault, robbery, and aggravated assault. "Violent victimization" includes serious violent crimes and simple assault. "Theft" includes purse-snatching, pickpocketing, and all attempted and completed thefts, with the exception of motor vehicle thefts. Theft does not include robbery in which threat or use of force is involved. Robbery is classified as a violent crime. "Total victimization" includes violent crimes and theft. "At school" includes inside the school building, on school property, or on the way to or from school. Although Indicators 2 and 3 present information on similar topics, the survey sources for these two indicators differ with respect to time coverage and administration. For more information on these two surveys, please see appendix A. Detail may not sum to total because students who reported more than one type of victimization were included in each, but only counted once in the total.
