This study is the second wave of a longitudinal research project examining bullying from the students’ perspective. A sample of 877 Swedish 13-year-olds filled out a questionnaire regarding the definition of bullying, reasons for why some students are bullied and the experience of adults’ response to bullying. In their definitions, girls were more likely than boys to include the victims’ experience of bullying, whereas boys were more likely than girls to mention bullying as an imbalance of power and a set of repeated actions. Assigning responsibility for the bullying to the bully was more common among girls and bullied adolescents than among boys and non-bullied adolescents. Furthermore, among bullied adolescents, 23% had not told anyone about the bullying, and 35% had not received any help.
