Abstract

The perpetration of bullying is a significant issue among researchers, policymakers, and the general public. Although researchers have examined the link between bullying and subsequent antisocial behavior, data and methodological limitations have hampered firm conclusions. This study uses longitudinal data from 411 males in the Cambridge Study in Delinquent Development from ages 8 to 56 in order to examine the relationship between adolescent bullying and distinct late middle adulthood trajectories of offending, in which different groups of males follow different offending pathways. Results show that self-reported bullying predicts only certain adult offending trajectories but that the effect becomes insignificant once controls are introduced for childhood risk factors, although this may be due to the small number of the most chronic offenders. Study implications and directions for future research are noted.

In analyses not shown, the total risk factor index has a positive and significant effect on self-reported bullying (OR = 1.089), indicating that males with a higher number of risk factors at age 8-10 are more likely to self-report being a definite bully at age 14. Disaggregating the total risk factor index into its individual and environmental components when predicting self-reported bullying shows that the individual risk factor index (OR = 1.237) is the only one that significantly predicts self-reported bullying. Not surprisingly, there is a significant relationship between the total risk factor index and the five conviction trajectories (F = 25.861, p < .001), with the high adolescence peak and the high rate chronic trajectories having the highest total risk scores (Mean = 11.56, SD = 4.10; Mean = 10.95, SD = 5.12, respectively) and the non-offender trajectory having the lowest total risk score (Mean = 5.04, SD = 3.29).
