Percentage of students experiencing bullying

Limitations

The indicator is based on the self-reporting by students of their experiences of bullying in or near school. There may be instances when some students feel sufficiently intimidated that they do not report incidents that have taken place thus resulting in an over-estimate of the safety of the school environment.

Purpose

This indicator provides information on the extent of self-reported violence and bullying in schools.

Definition

Percentage of students who, during a school year, experienced bullying.
