Our eight most recent studies, however, have all been random samples of known populations in schools so we can be fairly confident in the reliability and validity of the data obtained (click here for more information about the methodology).

Overall, about 25% of the students we have surveyed over the last eight studies have told us that they have been cyberbullied at some point in their lifetimes. About 9% said they were cyberbullied in the 30 days preceding the survey. Impact of computer games on society. PEGI Pan European Game Information - Welcome. Socio– cultural aspects of ICTs.
