Dating violence education statistics

Unhealthy relationship behaviors often start early and lead to a lifetime of abuse.

Transgender youth reported the highest rates of dating violence, with 88.9 percent reporting physical dating violence.

The Urban Institute’s study also showed that LGB youth were much more likely than their heterosexual peers to be perpetrators of dating violence.

For youth to thrive in schools and communities, they need to feel socially, emotionally, and physically safe and supported.

A positive school climate has been associated with decreased depression, suicidal feelings, substance use, and unexcused school absences among LGB students.

about 10 percent of high school students reported experiencing physical or sexual dating violence.

Unfortunately, most studies of IPV in the LGBTQ community focus exclusively on adults, and most studies of teen dating violence fail to take into account respondents’ sexual orientation or gender identity.

Positive environments can help all youth achieve good grades and maintain good mental and physical health.

However, some LGB youth are more likely than their heterosexual peers to experience negative health and life outcomes.

The public is invited to comment on the proposed regulations until July 21.
