Male Victims of Sexual Abuse: An Analysis of Substantiation of Child Protective Services Reports.
Dersch, Charette Alyse; Munsch, Joyce
Journal of Child Sexual Abuse, v8 n1 p27-48 1999
This study explores why reports involving female victims of sexual abuse are substantiated at a significantly higher rate than reports involving male victims. Both descriptive analyses of the child, case, and the investigatory process variables in the Child Protective Services reports and a discriminant function analysis to identify which variables distinguish between substantiated and unsubstantiated reports find relatively few differences.
