NOTE: The term "anywhere" is not used in the Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) questionnaire; students are simply asked how many times in the last 12 months they had been in a physical fight. In the question that asks students about physical fights at school, "on school property" was not defined for survey respondents. Detail may not sum to totals because of rounding.
