About the project

The Washington Post Sunday - - COLLEGE SEXUAL ASSAULT - Read more than 50 sur­vivor sto­ries at wapo.st/sto­ries. Com­plete data from the poll, de­tails on poll method­ol­ogy and sampling er­ror for smaller groups are avail­able at wapo.st/poll.

This is the 28th joint sur­vey by The Wash­ing­ton Post and the Henry J. Kaiser Fam­ily Foun­da­tion, a non­profit group that re­searches health care and other is­sues. The part­ners de­vel­oped, an­a­lyzed and paid for the sur­vey, with each bear­ing sole re­spon­si­bil­ity for its ed­i­to­rial prod­uct. The poll was con­ducted from Jan. 15 to March 29 among a ran­dom na­tional sam­ple of 1,053 adults ages 17 to 26 who are cur­rent or re­cent un­der­grad­u­ate stu­dents at a four-year U.S. col­lege since 2011 and lived on or near cam­pus. Stu­dents re­ported at­tend­ing more than 525 col­leges and uni­ver­si­ties in all 50 states and the Dis­trict of Columbia. In­ter­views were con­ducted on con­ven­tional and cel­lu­lar tele­phones by So­cial Science Re­search So­lu­tions of Me­dia, Pa. The mar­gin of sampling er­ror is plus or mi­nus 3.5 per­cent­age points for the full sam­ple. The er­ror mar­gin is 5 points for re­sults among the sam­ple of 539 men and 514 women. The project team from the Kaiser Fam­ily Foun­da­tion in­cluded Mollyann Brodie, Bianca DiJulio and Mira Nor­ton. The project team from The Wash­ing­ton Post in­cluded Pey­ton M. Craighill and Scott Cle­ment. Post re­porters Nick An­der­son, Emma Brown, Steve Hen­drix and Su­san Svrluga in­ter­viewed dozens of the poll re­spon­dents about their ex­pe­ri­ences with sex­ual as­sault, speak­ing with sur­vivors from coast to coast.
