The Relationship between Bullying Victimization and Fear of Crime with Effect Analysis of Alleviative and Aggravating Factors
This thesis studies the relationship between bullying victimization and the resulting fear of crime, then analyzes how seven alleviative and aggravating factors including school activities engagement, peer support, avoidance behaviors, school structure, supportive adults, school environment and neighborhood environment, affect the relationship. Data from the 2017 National Crime Victimization Survey: School Crime Supplement are used for estimation of nine multivariate regressions. Results strongly support the conclusion that students who experience bullying victimization are more likely to be fearful of crime than those who never have such experiences. In addition, my findings suggest that peer support, positive school structure, supportive adults, safe school environments and neighborhood environment can moderate the relationship between bullying victimization and fear of crime.
