The relationship between school bullying in adolescence and long-term unemployment in adulthood was investigated. A questionnaire was distributed to 68 participants of a training program for people with long-term unemployment in Finland. Responses were compared with data of a nationwide investigation (sample 53,394) of the prevalence of school bullying, according to which 8% of Finnish pupils are regularly bullied at least once a week. Among people with long-term unemployment, 29% reported having been exposed to school bullying at least once a week during their adolescence. This finding indicates a relationship between self-reported school bullying in adolescence and long-term unemployment in adulthood.
