The purpose of this study was to explore the relationship between demographics characteristics (gender, age, and ethnicity), body weight, video or computer games, physical education participation, and sports involvement and bully victimization among adolescent students. This was accomplished by conducting a quantitative study in which secondary data was utilized from the Center for Disease Control, 2013 Youth Risk Behavioral Surveillance System (YRBS). YRBS provided data, collected by CDC relating to health and risk behaviors including bullying (CDC, 2013). This study found a significant association between demographic characteristics, body weight, physical association, and time spent playing video or computer games and bully victimization. This study was intended to educate and bring awareness for parents, caregivers, educators, and professionals intervene and prevent adolescents from experiencing bullying.
