! Interpret data with caution. The coefficient of variation (CV) for this estimate is 30 percent or greater.
NOTE: "On school property" was not defined for survey respondents. The term "anywhere" was not used in the YRBS questionnaire; students were simply asked on how many days they carried a weapon during the past 30 days. Race categories exclude persons of Hispanic ethnicity.
