Hello and thank you for your question!
When approaching a topic like the statistics for bullying, both cyber and face-to-face, often the most up to date information will be found through a google search.
It is important that you use the statistics located at .gov or .edu sites when gathering this type of information as .org and .com sites might inflate their numbers in the cause of their advocacy activities.
At the google search page try entering bullying statistics 2017.
Among the results, you will see Facts about Bullying from StopBullying.gov. This site has a lot of facts, including stats on both cyber and face-to-face bullying. Once you find statistics you are interested in, pay attention to the footnotes as they can lead you into further information. For instance, we found a citation for the National Center for Education Statistics and Bureau of Justice Statistics, School Crime Supplement - an excellent report using Department of Education data.
Thanks for asking!
