The use of surveys and GIS mapping allows one to more readily examine spatial relationships that may occur. Greater attention may be paid to understanding these clusters and develop better individualized interventions. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the bullying in a population of nearly 600,000 students who represent a population of all the students who attend public school in the state of Georgia. The present study was delimited to students who attended grades 6-12 who completed the Georgia Student Health Survey (2.0). Specific research hypothesis examined geospatial incidences of bullying, (self-report of bullies and victims) and perceptions of being safe in school. Distinct spatial relationships between urban areas revealed strong significant findings.
