Finkelhor, David; And Others
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v21 n1 p1-9 Jan 1997
A national survey of 1000 parents concerning disciplinary practices and violence included questions about whether the children had been sexually abused, to assess the feasibility of epidemiological research on contemporaneous sexual abuse using parental interviews rather than the usual adult retrospective approach. Results indicated rates of sexual abuse of 1.9% in the last year and 5.7% ever. (Author/DB)
