    Methods 

    Data were taken from the National American Indian Adolescent Health Survey administered in 1988-1990 to 13,923 youths.

    Included in this analysis were 991 females and 166 males who reported a history of sexual abuse.

    Chi-square analysis was used to identify significant protective factors in sexually abused youths who did not report suicidality or hopelessness.

    Discriminant function analysis was used to determine which factors distinguished this group from those who experienced adverse health correlates.

    Results

    For suicidality in boys, significant protective factors were enjoyment of school, involvement in traditional activities, strong academic performance, and caring exhibited by family, adults, school people, and tribal leaders.

    No significant protective factors against hopelessness were identified for boys. (...)
