Is bullying usually carried out by an individual or group?

When over 6,000 Maltese primary and secondary schoolchildren were asked about bullying it was found that most bullying is carried out by one person (53.4%). However, this is closely followed by bullying with the support of a group. Bullying with a single friend is the least common. It was also found that the most common type of bullying carried out by the individual bully is physically violent.
