The Bullying Statistic

Date: 10 April 2008

A study on bullying by the University of British Columbia, based on 490 students (half female, half male) in Grades 8-10 in a B.C. city in the winter of 1999, showed:

64 per cent of kids had been bullied at school.

12 per cent were bullied regularly (once or more a week).

13 per cent bullied other students regularly (once or more a week).

72 per cent observed bullying at school at least once in a while.

40 per cent tried to intervene.

64 per cent considered bullying a normal part of school life.

61-80 per cent said bullies are often popular and enjoy high status among their peers.

25-33 per cent said bullying is sometimes OK and/or that it is OK to pick on losers.

20-50 per cent said bullying can be a good thing (makes people tougher, is a good way to solve problems, etc.).
