Data visualisation: Frequent bullying victimisation

This visualisation allows you to explore HBSC's data for young people who report being bullied at least twice per month in the past couple of months.

Victims of bullying are likely to experience a range of problems, such as depression and anxiety which can lead to self-harm and suicide in extreme cases. Bully victims are more likely to become socially withdrawn and experience school difficulties such as refusal to attend, underachievement and dropout.

Being bullied is associated with loneliness and a reduced ability to make friends, poor school perceptions, psychosomatic symptoms and higher levels of substance use. The effects are acute and may persist into later life, with research showing that victims of bullying at school are at increased risk of poor health and depression in adulthood.
