04 | SUMMARY FINDINGS 31 0 4 | SU M M A R Y F IN D IN G S NORTHERN TERRITORY PUBLIC SECTOR PEOPLE MATTER SURVEY REPORT 2014 FIGURE 4.15: Experience of bullying by demographic sub-group Respondents who experienced bullying were most likely to identify as being female (23 per cent), having a long term disability (31 per cent) and being Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander (26 per cent). There was minimal difference between age groups or between ongoing and non-ongoing employees. The breakdown of demographic sub-groups who witnessed bullying is similar to the profile of those who experienced bullying. Firstly, this may reflect that employee groups who are themselves more vulnerable to bullying are more likely to recognise particular incidents as being inappropriate based on a position of empathy. Secondly, the most vulnerable demographic sub-groups are less positive about their workplace in general. As explored in Section 7, demographic sub-groups which are in the minority, on average, less positive in their responses.
