The Prevalence of Child Sexual Abuse in Finland.
Sariola, Heikki; Uutela, Antti
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v18 n10 p827-35 Oct 1994
In a survey of approximately 9,000 15-year olds in Finland, about 6-8% of girls and 1-3% of boys reported sexual abuse experiences. Force had been used against 2% and violence against 1% of the girls. Significant regional differences could be interpreted as supporting a "subculture theory" of sorts. (Author/JDD)
