About

This indicator is the percentage of students in grades 6 to 12 who report having been bullied at school in the last 2 months.

Source

New Brunswick Health Council, New Brunswick Student Wellness Survey - Grades 6-12

Calculations

This indicator is based on respondents who answered all following 7 questions about being bullied: In the last two months, have you been bullied at school in the ways listed below? a) Physical attacks (for example, getting beaten up, pushed or kicked), b) Verbal attacks (for example, being called mean names, made fun of or teased in a hurtful way, threatened, or having lies told or rumours spread about you), c) Cyber-attacks (for example, receiving mean text messages or having rumours spread about you on the Internet or on social media), d) Exclusion (for example, being left out of things on purpose, being excluded from a group of friends or completely ignored), e) Someone stole from you or damaged your things, f) Someone made mean comments about your race, religion or personal features and g) Someone made sexual jokes, comments or gestures to you? The response options for these questions are "once or twice, 2-3 times a month, about once a week, several times a week, and I have never been bullied this way". This indicator is calculated by dividing the number of respondents who answered "once or twice, 2-3 times a month, about once a week, or several times a week" to at least 1 of the 7 questions by the number of respondents who answered all 7 questions.
