Sexual violence by age 18 - female

What does it mean ?

This is the percentage of young women aged 18 to 29 who experienced sexual violence by 18 years of age.

Why does it matter ?

Sexual violence is one of the most troubling violations of the rights of children. Experiences of sexual violence during childhood slow all aspects of physical, psychological/emotional and social development. Aside from the physical injuries, researchers have consistently found that sexual abuse of children is associated with a wide range of mental health outcomes and adverse behavioural effects in adulthood. This indicator captures one of the severest forms of violence against children. Children's right to protection from all forms of violence is enshrined in the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) and its Optional Protocols.

How is it collected ?

The preferred sources of data are household surveys, which have been used to collect data on this indicator in low- and middle-income countries since the late 1990s. In the absence of surveys, administrative data can be used to provide certain information but are limited to capturing violence that has been reported to authorities.

More about indicator, sources and calculations

More about indicator and sources

The data for each indicator on African Health Stats (AHStats) are published by the UN agency, or UN inter-agency group, which holds responsibility for global monitoring of the indicator. This varies by indicator. Please refer to ‘Data Source’. AHStats uses data from these sources because such data are internationally comparable and it is the mandate of those agencies to prepare such data and monitor progress internationally. In some cases the UN agency has made adjustments to the data in order to make national data internationally comparable, for example they may adjust national estimates to account for differences in survey design, the extent of potential underreporting, and the definition of what is being measured (e.g. maternal deaths). This means that at times there may be discrepancies between national and international estimates. Individual countries may prefer to instead rely on national figures for national monitoring. For uniformity, AHStats uses only international estimates of the UN agencies in data visualisations.

More information on calculations

This is the number of young women and men aged 18 to 29 years who report having experienced any sexual violence by age 18 divided by the total number of young women and men aged 18 to 29 years, respectively, in the population multiplied by 100. Having comparable data for this indicator is a serious challenge as many efforts to collect data include different study methodologies and designs, definitions of sexual violence, and samples and questions to retrieve information. Another challenge is underreporting, especially when it comes to reporting experiences of sexual violence among boys and men.
