School survey - local self-report studies in schools (all reports in English)



Self-report surveys are a well-established instrument going beyond police’s and law enforcement’s perspective on crime (cf. Görgen & Rabold, 2009) and providing information on situational conditions, personality variables and further background factors of deviance and victimization (such as socialization experiences, family and school characteristics, peer group and neighbourhood influences, life styles and leisure time behaviour). The survey applied in the study was based upon questionnaires used in the tradition of the International Self-Reported Delinquency Study (see Enzmann, Marshall, Killias, Junger-Tas, Steketee & Gruszczyńska, 2010; Junger-Tas, Marshall, Enzmann, Killias, Steketee & Gruszczyńska, 2010, on the second wave ISRD-2, and Junger-Tas, Marshall & Ribeaud, 2003, on the first wave). Via contacts with the Steering Committee for the third wave (ISRD-3), a newly developed instrument could be used for YouPrev purposes. It was adapted for the specific purposes of this project. Other instruments like the one developed by the Criminological Research Institute of Lower Saxony (Hanover, Germany; cf. Baier, Pfeiffer, Simonson & Rabold, 2009) were used for specific components. When adapting the instrument for the purposes of this project, a special focus was put on questions regarding young people’s views on crime and violence prevention. Thus, juveniles were in a sense treated as experts of their own security. Their first hand perspective not only on deviance and victimization but also on their perceptions and acceptance of preventive measures being undertaken was covered by the survey. In each partner country, two areas (one urban, one rural) were selected for self-report surveys.
