Description
  • Abstract

    These data are part of NACJD's Fast Track Release and are distributed as they were received from the data depositor. The files have been zipped by NACJD for release, but not checked or processed except for the removal of direct identifiers. Users should refer to the accompanying readme file for a brief description of the files available with this collection and consult the investigator(s) if further information is needed. The purpose of the study was to identify lifetime polyvictimization rates by gender identity and sexual orientation, for a national sample of sexual and gender minority adolescents. The study used an anonymous, incentivized, online survey which was completed by 1,177 sexual and gender minority adolescents who were currently enrolled in middle or high school (14 to 19-years-old). The collection includes a README file, 1 STATA data file, (n=1,177; 520 variables) and 1 STATA syntax file.
  • Abstract

    The purpose of the study was to identify lifetime polyvictimization rates by gender identity and sexual orientation, for a national sample of sexual and gender minority adolescents.
  • Methods

    Participants were recruited through Facebook advertisements targeting 14 to 19-year-old adolescents with interests in sexual and gender minority topics and organizations and/or reported romantic interest in someone of the same gender or both genders. The study employed an anonymous, English-only, online survey and all its procedures were approved by an Institutional Review Board at a major research university in California.
  • Methods

    The data file contains 1,177 cases and 520 variables including demographic information such as age, sexual orientation, gender identity, assigned birth sex, and race/ethnicity about the respondent. Further variables relate to the prevalence of 38 different forms of victimization across five subscales: conventional crime, child maltreatment, peer and sibling victimization, sexual victimization, and indirect and witnessed victimization.
  • Methods

    Presence of Common Scales: Abbreviated Juvenile Victimization Questionnaire - 2nd Revision (AJVQ; Finkelhor, Hamby, Turner, and Ormrod, 2011), Swearer Bullying Survey (SBS; Swearer and Doll, 2001), and the Center for Epidemiological Studies Depression Short Depression Scale (CESD-10).

Sampled Universe
Sexual and gender minority adolescents who were enrolled in middle or high school (14 to 19-years-old) in the spring of 2015. Smallest Geographic Unit: None
Sampling
The study used a convenience sample. As the sexual orientation categories of queer and questioning often account for only 4 to 6% of SMA convenience samples (Sterzing et al., 2014), the study utilized sexual orientation-based quota sampling to ensure these less frequent identity categories had a minimum of 38 participants to allow for statistical comparisons: gay (30.7%, n = 361), lesbian (24.0%, n = 282), bisexual (18.4%, n = 216), pansexual (11.2%, n = 132), questioning (7.1%, n = 83), queer (4.1%, n = 48), and other (4.7%, n = 55). The racial and ethnic composition of the sample was: White (62.7%, n = 732), Black (8.3%, n = 97), Latino/a (10.3%, n = 117), multiracial (13.1%, n = 153), and other (9.5%, n = 112).
