  1. Abuse against women in rural Minnesota.

    The survey results showed that in the prior 12 months, 109 (6.6%) of the respondents reported physical abuse, 347 (21.1%) reported emotional/verbal abuse, and 35 (2.1%) reported sexual abuse.

    Proportional increases in risk of current abuse relative to married women were 2.1 for single, 2.5 for divorced, and 6.5 for separated women, after adjusting for other important variables.

    Single women with a recent status change had significantly higher risk of current abuse than women with a recent status change at all other marital status levels in adjusted analyses.

    Women who reported some form of abuse before age 18, and women reporting abuse as an adult prior to the last 12 months, were significantly more likely to report current abuse in all analyses. (...)
