Abstract: BACKGROUND: We analyze trends in bullying victimization prevalence in a representative sample of Spanish adolescent schoolchildren in 2006, 2010, and 2014. METHODS: We distinguish between reported bullying, which is assessed via the global question in the Revised Bully/Victim Questionnaire by Olweus, and observed bullying, which is a measure developed from the answers that the adolescents gave to specific items that refer to different types of bullying that have been codified as physical, verbal, and relational bullying. RESULTS: For 2006 and 2010/2014, the results show stability in the assessment of reported bullying and an increase in observed bullying, analyzed both globally and within the 3 categories: physical, verbal, and relational. CONCLUSIONS: A valid, reliable, and accurate measure to detect cases of bullying is necessary, as is the importance of continuing efforts devoted to raising awareness and the prevention of this phenomenon. El presente trabajo analiza las tendencias en la prevalencia de ser víctima de bullying en una muestra representativa de adolescentes escolarizados españoles entre 2006, 2010 y 2014. Para ello se diferenció entre bullying informado, evaluado mediante el indicador global del Revised Bully/Victim Questionnaire de Olweus (1996), y el bullying observado, construido a través de las respuestas de los adolescentes a ítems específicos referidos a distintos tipos de bullying del mismo instrumento, y que, además, se codificaron como maltrato físico, verbal y relacional. Los resultados muestran estabilidad entre 2006 y 2010/2014 si se evalúa el bullying informado y un aumento del bullying observado, tanto analizado globalmente como en las tres categorías: físico, verbal y relacional. Se discute la necesidad de contar con una medida válida, fiable y precisa para detectar los casos de bullying, así como la importancia de continuar dedicando esfuerzos a la concienciación y prevención de este fenómeno.
