Definition: Estimated percentage of adults 18 and older who before age 18 were sexually abused by an adult or other person at least five years older (e.g., among California adults in households with children in 2008-2013, an estimated 9.7% had been sexually abused by an adult or other person at least five years older).
Data Source: Rodriguez, D., et al. (2016). Prevalence of adverse childhood experiences by county, California Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System 2008, 2009, 2011, and 2013. Public Health Institute, Survey Research Group.
Footnote: 2008-2013 data are weighted to reflect the 2010 non-institutionalized population of California 18 years and older. LNE (Low Number Event) refers to data that have been suppressed because either (i) fewer than 30 respondents in the household type reported having been sexually abused by an adult or other person at least five years older, or (ii) the margin of error was 10 percentage points or greater. N/A means that data are not available.
