The WHO Europe Child and Adolescent Health Database (CAHD) provides a set of statistics based on indicators related to the health and well-being of children and adolescents. The statistics were collated from a variety of databases as a joint effort between WHO program divisions and collaborating centres and partners. The database was constructed for the purpose of supporting the Child and Adolescent Health and Development Strategy (2015), providing the relevant information for monitoring progress on child and adolescent health indicators in the 53 member states of the WHO European Region. 

Indicator notes
Source: Health Behavior in School-aged Children,
Young people aged 11, 13, and 15 were asked how often they had taken part in bullying (an)other student(s) at school in the past couple of months, using the following definition of bullying: We say a student is being bullied when another student, or a group of students, say or do nasty and unpleasant things to him or her. It is also bullying when a student is teased repeatedly in a way he or she does not like or when he or she is deliberately left out of things. But it is not bullying when two students of about the same strength or power argue or fight. It is also not bullying when a student is teased in a friendly and playful way. Response options ranged from zero to several times a week. Findings show associations between family affluence and bullying others at least two or three times in the past couple of months. 0 means less than +-0.5%. Low- and high-affluence groups represent the lowest 20% and highest 20% in each country. Denmark excludes data from Greenland.
