      The following research article contains location statistics based on their study. Abbey, A., BeShears, R., Clinton-Sherrod, A. M., & McAuslan, P., “Similarities And Differences In Women’s Sexual Assault Experiences Based On Tactics” (2004). Psychology of Women Quarterly, 28, 323–332


      Over two thirds of all rapes occur in someone’s home. 30.9% occur in the perpetrators’ homes, 26.6% in the victims’ homes and 10.1% in homes shared by the victim and perpetrator. 7.2% occur at parties, 7.2% in vehicles, 3.6% outdoors and 2.2% in bars.

      This blog is mainly focused on the Child Sexual Abuse (CSA) aspects of sexual violence. CSA Victims are considered minors, typically under 18 years old, so it is logical that the acts of abuse would most likely happen in someone’s home, as the study indicates.
