For sample children ages 12-17, PERPBULLY indicates how often they have bullied, picked on, or excluded others in the last 12 months. In recognition of the emerging importance of bullying victimization on the health of adolescents, NCHS introduced PERPBULLY to the NHIS in 2021 as one of three variables on bullying. The bullying variables introduced on the 2021 NHIS were adapted from the Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System (YRBSS). For more information about NHIS variables on bullying victimization, please refer to VICBULLY.
