Victimization by Bullying and Harassment in High School: Findings from the 2005 Youth Risk Behavior Survey in a Southwestern State
Bauman, Sheri
Journal of School Violence, v7 n3 p86-104 2008
This study analyzed data on victimization by bullying and harassment on school property in a large, diverse, random sample of high school students in Arizona using data from the 2005 Youth Risk Behavior Survey. No gender differences in frequency of victimization were detected, but differences by grade, Body Mass Index category, academic performance, depressive symptoms, suicidal thoughts and actions, and feelings of safety were statistically significant, although the magnitude of the differences, as measured by effect sizes, were generally small. Implications of the findings for schools are discussed. (Contains 3 tables and 2 figures.)
