The Dynamics and Determinants of Bullying Victimisation

Abstract: We study the determinants and longitudinal evolution of nine types of adolescent (verbal, physical, indirect) bullying at school and domestically using the Understanding Society dataset during 2009-13. Family support is the most prominent protective factor against bullying. Joint maximum likelihood estimation (MLE) for dynamic discrete responses, establishes non-simultaneous determination of bullying and family support suggesting victimisation disclosure might be uncommon. The probability of escaping victimisation is inversely related to previous bullying intensity. Economic disadvantage (low family/regional income per capita) is a significant risk factor. Composite likelihood estimated threshold differences indicate that approximately halving household income can induce bullying victimisation of non-victims.
