The prevalence of self-injurious behavior (SIB) in a Finnish institution for people (n=421) with mental retardation was investigated. SIB was found to be most common among adults ages 18-34, those with more severe mental retardation, those with less adaptive skills, those with violent behavior, and those with childhood psychosis.
