Developing a Global Indicator on Bullying of School-aged Children
This Innocenti working paper, Developing a Global Indicator on Bullying of School-Aged Children, documents the process of building and validating a global indicator of bullying in schools. It presents and assesses global information on the bullying of school-age children and examines the feasibility of developing a global measure from existing survey data. The paper provides basic analyses of bullying rates (as measured in this study) and links to potential macro-level determinants, such as national income inequality, wealth and heterogeneity in socio-demographic characteristics, as well as its associations with educational outcomes, youth suicide rates and estimates of mental health.
