Abstract : This report examines reported sexual harassment and sexual assault in 2006 and changes between 2002 and 2006. In addition, we analyze the relationship among different types of sexual harassment and sexual assault to assess whether indicators of assault have changed over this same time frame. We utilize a combination of univariate, bivariate and multivariate statistical techniques for the analyses. Data from DOD-wide surveys, one completed in 2002 and one in 2006, by the Defense Data Manpower Center (DMDC), provide the responses analyzed for our report. Results could increase our understanding of which policies may be effective in reducing these undesirable behaviors.
