The School Crime Supplement (SCS) is a supplement to the National Crime Victimization Survey and collects, analyzes, publishes and disseminates school-related victimizations for students 12 to 18 years old. The primary purpose of the SCS is to obtain information about school-related victimizations. This information helps policymakers, academic researchers, practitioners at the federal, state, and local levels, and special interest groups, who are concerned with crime in schools, make informed decisions about policies and programs. The Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) is authorized to collect statistics on victimization under Title 34, United States Code, Section 10301 of the Justice Systems Improvement Act of 1979. Title 1 of the Education Sciences Reform Act (ESRA) mandates that the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) collect, report, analyze, and disseminate statistical data regarding education in the United States.

The decrease in the respondent burden from 2,046 hours to 1,728 hours is attributed to a decrease in expected persons and interviews. We expect a slight decrease in the response rates and minimal difference in the interview times between the 2019 SCS and 2022 SCS. The number of persons in the household who are 12 to 18 years old that will be eligible for the supplement is decreasing by about 13% from 16,133 respondents in 2019 to about 13,992 respondents in 2022 because of the decrease in expected interviewed households and eligible persons as survey response rates decrease over time.
