This is New Zealand’s largest and most comprehensive survey of the health and wellbeing. This report presents findings from Youth’12, the third national health and wellbeing survey of secondary school students in New Zealand. Included in the survey are a range of factors that impact on the healthy development of young people, including family/whānau, community, education and social environments. This report focuses on reporting the sexual violence experiences and the sexual and reproductive health of students in secondary schools. The information in this report was provided by a representative sample of 8,500 students from secondary schools throughout New Zealand in 2012. There are three parts to this report: (1) Experience of unwanted sexual contact, (2) Sexual and reproductive health and (3) Ethnic specific information for Māori and Pacific students. Also reported are selected time trends from the 2001, 2007 and 2012 surveys. Experience of unwanted sexual contact How many students experience unwanted sexual contact? Fifteen percent of New Zealand secondary school students report an experience of unwanted sexual contact. Females were more than twice as likely to report unwanted sexual contact than males. Most commonly, it was a boyfriend/girlfriend or a friend who forced an unwanted sexual experience on the student . Over half (55%) of the students who reported unwanted sexual contact reported that it happened when they were 14 years or younger. Nearly three-quarters of males and just over half of the females never told anyone about it. Those who do disclose unwanted sexual contact most commonly tell a friend. Between 2001 and 2012, the rate of reported unwanted sexual contact decreased by 8%." (From the executive summary). Synergia has prepared a 12 page summary of this report for ACC. Record #5130
