Abstract [en]

The Swedish National Board of Health and Welfare has declared that violence is a public health issue and also that young people aged 16-24 years are the category most exposed to violence. In this article the large differences in prevalence rates for exposure to different forms of violence, as reported in various Swedish studies, are presented and discussed. In most studies it was evident that young women were more often exposed to psychological and sexual violence than young men, while young men were more often exposed to physical violence. Young women's reporting of current suffering from the violence they had experienced was more pronounced than that reported by young men. A question for discussion is whether the violence exposure of young men and women might be a reason for the decline in psychological and physical health among youth, as reported in Swedish national health surveys over the past 15-20 years.
