is a serious sociodevelopmental issue associated with a range of short-
and long-term problems among youth who are bullied. Although race and
ethnicity have been studied, less attention has been paid to examining
prevalence and correlates of bullying victimization among immigrant youth.
Using data from the Health Behavior in School-Aged Children (N = 12,098), we examined prevalence and correlates of bullying victimization among U.S. immigrant youth.
After controlling for several demographic variables, findings indicate that immigrant youth are more likely to experience bullying victimization than native-born youth. Furthermore, immigrant youth who experience bullying victimization were more likely to report interpersonal, socioemotional, health, and substance use problems.
