Despite international recognition, few comparison studies examining bullying have been conducted due to methodological differences. Within the US, bullying studies are often conducted in isolation and no consistent prevalence rates have been established (Griffin and Gross in Aggress Violent Behav 9:379-400, 2004). The purpose of this study was to address some of the gaps in the literature, including conducting a direct comparison between American children and children in another English-speaking country (UK). Few differences between countries or sexes were found, which was contrary to previous studies. Our results were described as an initial step in cross-national comparisons and program implications were also illustrated.
