"Theft" includes attempted and completed purse-snatching, completed pickpocketing, and all attempted and completed thefts, with the exception of motorvehicle thefts.

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. Population size is 25,302,000 students ages 12–18 in 2011. Detail may not sum to total due to rounding and missing data on student characteristics. Estimates of number of crimes are rounded to the nearest 100.|
