dc.description.abstractHBSC Ireland 2010 has found that 24.3% of schoolchildren in Ireland report having been bullied (25.5% of boys and 23% of girls). This figure has remained stable since 2006 (24.5%). The percentages of boys and girls being bullied are at their highest in the 10-11 year old category (28.2% of boys and 31.2% of girls) and decrease with age for both boys (26.1% in 12-14 year olds, 23.7% in 15-17 year olds) and girls (24.3% in 12-14 year olds, 18.0% in 15-17 year olds). Children who have been bullied are less likely to live with both parents, find it easy to talk to their parents or best friend or to like school. They are more likely to report feeling pressured by schoolwork. Bullying in this factsheet refers to children who report being bullied at school once or more in the past couple of months.en_US
