The qualitative data are not available as part of the data collection at this time. Numerous high-profile events involving student victimization on school buses have raised critical questions regarding the safety of school-based transportation for children, the efforts taken by school districts to protect students on buses, and the most effective transportation-based behavioral management strategies for reducing misconduct. To address these questions, a national web-based survey was administered to public school district-level transportation officials throughout the United States to assess the prevalence of misconduct on buses, identify strategies to address misconduct, and describe effective ways to reduce student misbehavior on buses. Telephone interviews were also conducted with a small group of transportation officials to understand the challenges of transportation-based behavioral management, to determine successful strategies to create safe and positive school bus environments, and to identify data-driven approaches for tracking and assessing disciplinary referrals. The collection includes 10 Stata data files: BVSBS_analysis file.dta (n=2,595; 1058 variables) Title Crosswalk File.dta (n=2,594; 3 variables) Lessons Learned and Open Dummies.dta (n=1,543; 200 variables) CCD dataset.dta (n=12,494; 89 variables) BVSB_REGION.dta (n=4; 3 variables) BVSB_SCHOOLS.dta (n=3; 3 variables) BVSB_STUDENTS.dta (n=3; 3 variables) BVSB_URBAN.dta (n=8; 3 variables) BVSB_WHITE.dta (n=3; 3 variables) FINALRAKER.dta (n=2,595; 2 variables) Cf: http://doi.org/10.3886/ICPSR37043.v1
