dc.description.abstract Objectives: To examine the relative prevalence of recent (past 12 months) penetrative and non-penetrative sexual violence comparing men and women with and without a disability. Methods: Data are from the 2010 National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey, a national telephone survey of US adults, and includes an expansive measure of sexual violence victimization. A total of 9086 women and 7421 men completed the telephone survey in 2010. Results: Compared with persons without a disability, persons with a disability were at increased risk for recent rape for women (adjusted odds ratio = 3.3; 95% confidence interval = 1.6, 6.7), and being made to penetrate a perpetrator for men (adjusted odds ratio = 4.2; 95% confidence interval = 1.6, 10.8). An estimated 39% of women raped in the 12 months preceding the survey had a disability at the time of the rape. For women and men, having a disability was associated with an increased risk of sexual coercion and non-contact unwanted sexual experiences. Conclusions: In this nationally representative sample, men and women with a disability were at increased risk for recent sexual violence, compared to those without a disability.
