This study was recently added to the ICPSR (Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research) database. The study seeks to identify the number of women in the United States and in college settings raped or sexually assaulted during their lifetime and within the past year; to identify key case characteristics of drug-facilitated and forcible rapes; to examine factors affecting the willingness of women to report rape to law enforcement and seek help from support networks; and to make comparisons between different types of rape.
The data were derived from a national telephone household sample of 3001 American women and the college population data consisted of a sample of 2000 college women.
