OJJDP has updated its Statistical Briefing Book with a new Data Snapshot on the prevalence of bullying experiences reported by high school students in 2021. The snapshot draws on data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System.
The data show that bullying on school property declined between 2011 and 2021, while bullying electronically remained stable. The data also show that females were more likely than males to report bullying, while students who identify as heterosexual were less likely to report bullying experiences than their nonheterosexual peers.
Developed for OJJDP by the National Center for Juvenile Justice, the research division of the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges, the Statistical Briefing Book offers easy online access to statistics on a variety of juvenile justice topics.
