A history of sexual assault in females and a history of dating violence in males did not increase the rates of attempted suicide, which is the third leading cause of death for adolescents.
Researchers surveyed 8,080 students age 14 and older in 87 New York City public high schools.
When asked what they would do if they knew a friend or relative who was abusing a girlfriend or wife, half (50%) of all young men surveyed said that would say something to him about his abusive behavior.
More than two-thirds (66%) said that they'd be somewhat or very likely to report the abuse to the police.
Approximately nine out of ten (87%) young women said that they take special precautions to rarely or never walk alone after dark and nearly two-thirds (64%) said that they think about what could happen if they leave a drink unattended.
For young women the personal connection is even more profound and the fear of sexual violence alters their daily life.Dating violence was defined as being hit, slapped or hurt on purpose by a boyfriend or girlfriend.Adolescent girls who reported dating violence were 60 percent more likely to report one or more suicide attempts in the past year, the survey found, and males who reported sexual assault were four times as likely to have attempted suicide.Additionally, quotas were set to ensure racial representation that is reflective of the U. The survey found that dating violence was more common among partners who had punched, shoved or otherwise abused their siblings than those who had not.The study examined what happens between the ages of 10 and 14, when sibling violence peaks.
