What Are Some Statistics About Bullying?

Some statistics about bullying include that male victims experience more incidents of physical bullying than female victims, as stated by The Urban Institute. Female victims encounter psychological victimization or incidents of cyberbullying more often than males.

About one in three high school students experienced bullying during the 2011 school year, as explained the Megan Meier Foundation. Studies show that the long-term results of bullying are similar to the effects of maltreatment.

Of the students who responded to a survey by the National Center for Education Statistics, 71.9 percent reported that classmates cyberbullied them at least once or twice during the school year. About 3.1 percent of students stated that they were victims of cyberbullying almost daily.
