"This is the fourth edition of 'Indicators of School Crime and Safety,' a joint effort by the Bureau of Justice Statistics and the National Center for Education Statistics. The report provides detailed statistical information to inform the nation on the current nature of crime in schools. This edition of 'Indicators' contains the most recent available data on school crime and safety drawn from a number of statistical series supported by the federal government. These data include results from a study of violent deaths in school, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; the 1999 National Crime Victimization Survey, which is conducted by the Census Bureau on behalf of the Bureau of Justice Statistics; and the Youth Risk Behavior Survey, sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention."
