“With respect to sexual violence and stalking, female victims reported predominantly male perpetrators, whereas for male victims, the sex of the perpetrator varied by the specific form of violence examined. Male rape victims predominantly had male perpetrators, but other forms of sexual violence experienced by men were either perpetrated predominantly by women (i.e., being made to penetrate and sexual coercion) or split more evenly among male and female perpetrators (i.e., unwanted sexual contact and noncontact unwanted sexual experiences). In addition, male-stalking victims also reported a more even mix of males and females who had perpetrated stalking against them.”In terms of stalking, 15% of women have been stalked at least once in their lives, while men fall behind with 5%. The study was performed between January and December 2011. An estimated 14,000 interviews were conducted with 7,758 women and 6,397 men:
“The estimates presented in this report are based on completed interviews. An interview is defined as having been completed if the respondent completed the demographic and general health questions as well as all of the violence victimization questions. Approximately 40.0% of completed interviews were conducted by landline telephone, and 60.0% of completed interviews were conducted by using a respondent's cellular telephone.”This study is well detailed, to say the least. We urge our readers to take a look at these results and also to keep in mind that although these numbers seem large, to think about the cases that have undergone unreported.
