Cyberbullying is a major public concern due to its physical, emotional, and psychological impact affecting both victims and perpetrators. This study analyzed existing survey results from seventh- and eighth-grade students at a school in the midwestern United States to investigate possible similarities and differences in perceptions of cyberbullying between students who had been affected by bullying and those who had not. Seventy-two percent of the students indicated they had been affected by cyberbullying at least once and 54% had been affected more than once. Analysis of response patterns within groups of students identified similarities and differences in trends between affected and nonaffected students as well as across genders.
