Create a numerical and verbal hypothesis statement:
People who are cyber bullied have, for the most part, been bullied in more traditional manners as well." Their research showed that the incidence increased over time, with 23 cases (56%) taking place between 2003 and 2010. But in 2011 and the first four months of 2012, there were 18 cases of suicides with a cyber bullying link. It’s hard to track the cases due to the rarity of it happeing, suicide, although cyber bullying has become popular by the masses. The vast majority of cases, 23, were in the U.S., followed by six in Australia, five in the U.K. and four in Canada. There are also plenty factors to look into as far as cyber bullying goes and its correlation with suicide. Of the victims, 78% of them who committed suicide were bullied both at school and online — with only 17% targeted on the internet only, studies show. A mood disorder was present in 32% of the teens, and another 15% also had depression symptoms. Another notable finding was that all of the victims were between the ages of 13 to 18, likely stemming from the pressures of adolescence, LeBlanc said. The suicide rate from these lucid acts is higher among females than males as well as Facebook being the more popular website utilized to cyberbuly.
