[excerpt]

Bullying Surveillance Among Youths: Uniform Definitions for Public Health and Recommended Data Elements,

Version 1.0 is designed as a tool to help organizations, researchers, evaluators, community groups, educators,

and public health officials define and gather systematic data on bullying to better inform research and prevention

efforts. It is intended to improve the consistency and comparability of data collected on bullying. Current efforts

to characterize bullying vary considerably. The lack of a uniform definition hinders our ability to understand

the true magnitude, scope, and impact of bullying and track trends over time. Consistent terminology with

standardized definitions is necessary to improve public health surveillance of bullying and inform efforts to

address bullying.
