How can you help ?
Since 2002, over 20,000 middle and high school students in twelve different studies from over 98 different schools throughout the United States. The first two studies were online exploratory samples used to obtain a general understanding of the problem .As such, the numbers obtained are higher than average and not representative because they only include online teens who volunteered to participate. Our ten most recent studies, however, have all been random samples of known populations, so we can be fairly confident in the reliability and validity of the data obtained .Overall, about 27% of the students we have surveyed over the last ten studies have told us that they have been cyber bullied at some point in their lifetimes. About 10% said they were cyber bullied in the 30 days preceding the survey. Similarly, about 16% of those who we surveyed admitted that they had cyber bullied others at some point in their lifetimes (about 6% in the most recent 30 days).
