Cyberbullying: being bullied 

Jump to data

Cyberbullying poses a serious threat to adolescent well-being, with the potential to cause lasting emotional and psychological harm. This measure examines the prevalence of cyberbullying victimization reported by young people, providing crucial insights into the extent of this harmful behaviour in online environments. By understanding the scope of the issue, decision-makers can develop targeted interventions and support systems to protect young people, foster a culture of digital respect, and create safer online spaces for their development.
