Violence is defined as witnessing violence at home, bullying at school, being a victim or a perpetrator of violence. The report presents the characteristics of these experiences (who committed the violence against whom) and how bad the students considered this to be. The report also provides data on the frequency of violent events and health issues associated with the violence. The data was collected as part of Youth2000, a self-reported anonymous survey undertaken in New Zealand secondary schools in 2001; 9,699 randomly selected year 9-13 students from 114 randomly selected schools participated in the survey.The principal findings of the research were: Violence is commonly experienced by many young New Zealanders and is associated with many health issues; exposure to domestic violence is particularly disturbing for young people and is associated with serious health outcomes; a significant number of young people feel unsafe at school and many young people who experience violence do not access service or receive support. Drawing on these findings, the authors provide recommendations for different groups: young people, parents and families, schools, health and social services, funders and policy makers.
