GOING CYBER: USING ROUTINE ACTIVITIES THEORY TO PREDICT CYBERBULLYING EXPERIENCES
Abbreviated Journal Title
VICTIMIZATION; STUDENTS; Sociology
Using data from a national sample of 935 teenagers, we examine the ability of routine activities theory to predict cyberbullying. The data used in this analysis were collected as part of the Pew Internet and American Life Project Web site. Among the different elements of routine activities theory, suitability and availability were found to have the strongest correlations to experienced cyberbullying. Using logistic regression, our findings show that routine activities theory is a viable explanation for cyberbullying risk among teenagers.
