Female youth and victimization: An examination of traditional and cybermethods of bullying
by Brar, Gurjeet K., M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2012, 98; 1522210
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this study was to determine what individual level factors are associated with both traditional and cybervictimization experiences among female adolescents. Additionally, the study sought to identify how the correlates of traditional and cybervictimization differ. The current literature reveals a lack of emphasis specifically on how and what types of female students are bullied. The methodology employed secondary data analysis of the 2009 National Crime Victimization Survey, School Crime Supplement. Results of the current study support previous research, but also identify additional factors (e.g., participation in performing arts and school type) associated with victimization that have received relatively scant or no attention in the past.
