Abstract

Evidence suggests that two thirds of sexual assault victims do not report their assaults. The present study will examine factors related to “non-reporters” by using the existing survey data from 460 sexual assault female survivors. Preliminary analysis suggests age at assault as well as “closeness” to their perpetrators.
