Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2004, $152,087)
This project will investigate the epidemiology of sexual assaults in Alaska and the ways in which alcohol use affects the reported assaults. In a four-pronged approach, researchers will collect and analyze Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners (SANE) evaluations of victims statewide; examine the spatial patterns of reported assaults in Anchorage; describe and identify the causes and consequences of the time lapse between the end of the assault and the report to the police or examination by a SANE; and examine how alcohol use affects anogenital injuries.
