This report examines the prevalence and nature of bullying in relation to student characteristics, school characteristics, and victimization. In addition, the report explores other behaviors that were reported by the victim, such as fear, avoidance behavior, weapon carrying, and academic grades. It examines student reports of being bullied by direct means only, bullied by indirect means only, and bullied both directly and indirectly. Readers are alerted to the limitations of the survey design and analysis approach with regard to causality. Conclusions about causality can not be made due to the cross-sectional, nonexperimental design of the survey used. And, while certain characteristics discussed in this report, such as school control, gang presence, security guards, and hallway monitors, may be related to one another, this analysis does not control for such relationships. Therefore, no causal inferences should be made between the variables of interest and bullying when reading these results. Appended are: (1) Technical Notes; (2) Estimate Tables; (3) Standard Error Tables; and (4) 2001 School Crime Supplement to the National Crime Victimization Survey Instrument.(Contains 7 figures and 21 tables.)
