This page uses data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Youth Risk Behavioral Survey (YRBS) to show percentages of online bullying throughout the Fox Cities Region, including breakdowns by both race and sexual preference. The YRBS asks high school students to report if they have been electronically bullied in the past year. The YRBS is administered by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction in conjunction with the CDC.
Wisconsin data are displayed for 2013 and Fox Cities’ regional data are displayed from 2015. Regional YRBS data contains aggregated responses from 10 school districts: Appleton, Freedom, Hortonville, Kaukauna, Kimberly, Little Chute, Neenah, Menasha, Seymour, and Shiocton. The sexual preference question was added to the YRBS national survey in 2015, while the Wisconsin 2013 survey included this question. For 2015, only 20 states reported so incomplete data at the national level has not been included.
