The current study used latent profile analysis to identify subgroups of victims based on victimization (self- and peer-reported) and popularity (peer-reported). This study sought to (1) verify the existence of popular victims and (2) compare victim subgroups on loneliness and self-esteem. Participants were 804 Dutch adolescents (50.2% boys, Mage = 13.65 years). Results revealed six subgroups, including a group of popular self-identified victims. Popular self-identified victims were generally less lonely than other victims, but were more lonely and had lower self-esteem than non-victims. Implications for understanding the victimization experiences of high-status youth are discussed. All information about the content of the files is described in 'read me.pdf'.
