Measuring Self-Reported Sexual Victimization Experiences at One University: A Comparison of Methods
Palmer, Jane E.; Perrotti, Carmine
Journal of Student Affairs Research and Practice, v53 n4 p403-415 2016
In light of calls for higher educational institutions to conduct surveys on sexual victimization, the purpose of this study was to compare the sexual victimization estimates for male and female college students from two types of surveys conducted by the same university in 2011 and 2013. Results indicate that question wording significantly affects estimates, especially for sexual victimization involving incapacitation. Recommendations on ways to measure unwanted sexual activities and policy implications are included.
