The purpose of this thesis is to consider why children tell "Gakkou no Kwaidan" through a statistical verification of hypothesis that the cause of "Gakkou no Kwaidan" boom is resistance by children who are oppressed at school and home. In 2007, this survey was carried out at five public elementary schools and two public junior high schools in Tohoku, Kinki and Chugoku regions. For this analysis it was examined what variables determined children's attitude toward ghost story by means of four independent variables: sex, educational phase, student subculture, and parent-child relationship. As a result of analysis, it didn't support the conventional hypothesis that "Gakkou no Kwaidan" boom caused by children resistingpressure. It was proposed a new hypothesis that the source of occurring" Gakkou no Kwaidan" was will of children trying to acquire an identity of its own because there was correlation between attitude toward ghost story and variables associated with recognition and communication.
