Oregon Puts Sexual Violence Prevention On The Map

Sexual coercion as reported by 11th graders. Darker color=higher rates.

One in eight students in an Oregon survey reported being pressured into unwanted sexual activity.  But the incidents are not evenly distributed across the landscape. 

For example, Douglas County shows a higher rate of sexual coercion than Jackson and Josephine Counties.  A new set of maps from the Oregon Health Authority and the Oregon Department of Education show the information graphically.  

The Sexual Violence Prevention Resource Map is meant to assist in lowering the rates of sexual coercion.  Sasha Grenier from ODE and Matthew Laidler from OHA are our guests.
