Supplementary notes

NOTE: “Cyber bullying” was defined for respondents as occurring “when willful and repeated harm is inflicted through the use of computers, cell phones, or other electronic devices.” Responses were provided by the principal or the person most knowledgeable about crime and safety issues at the school. Respondents were instructed to include cyber bullying “problems that can occur anywhere (both at your school and away from school).” Primary schools are defined as schools in which the lowest grade is not higher than grade 3 and the highest grade is not higher than grade 8. Middle schools are defined as schools in which the lowest grade is not lower than grade 4 and the highest grade is not higher than grade 9. High schools are defined as schools in which the lowest grade is not lower than grade 9 and the highest grade is not higher than grade 12. Combined schools include all other combinations of grades, including K–12 schools
