Ditching the Label: Survey 2016.

Bullying Statistics in the UK – The Annual Bullying Survey 2016.

The My name is Tom is grateful to DTL for use of their previous surveys as part of the Education, their coverage and detail is second to none.

Their Annual Bullying Survey 2016, the fourth and largest edition of our yearly benchmark of bullying in the United Kingdom. We surveyed 8,850 young people aged 12-20 in partnership with schools and colleges from across the country. Our free report has thousands of the latest bullying statistics and fully explores the reasons why young people bully others. Key findings include:

 • 1.5 million young people (50%) have been bullied within the past year.
• 145,800 (19%) of these were bullied EVERY DAY.
• Twice as many boys as girls bully (66% of males vs. 31% females).
• 59% of respondents who identified as trans have been bullied.
• 24% of those who have been bullied go on to bully.
• 20% of all young people have physically attacked somebody.
• 44% of young people who have been bullied experience depression.
• 41% of young people who have been bullied experience social anxiety.
• 33% of those being bullied have suicidal thoughts.

 These statistics are worrying because it suggests what has been tried to alleviate the problems hasn’t worked and the situation has got worse; more young people engaging with pornography, the increase of younger people getting involved, the growing increase in mental health issues and particular for young girls.

                             We are not trying to tell people what to do; only that                           young people and adults should talk.
