Differences in victimization among young adults with different levels of ADHD symptoms (English)
Abstract [sv]

Denna studie undersökte skillnader i utsatthet hos unga vuxna med höga respektive låga ADHD-symtom samt könsskillnader i utsatthet mellan dessa grupper. Information från RESUMÉ-studien användes, där man undersökt 2 500 unga vuxna mellan 20 och 24 år, som genom enkäter och intervjuer redogjort för eventuella upplevelser av fysisk-, verbal- och sexuell utsatthet samt egendomsbrott. Resultaten visade – i enlighet med tidigare studier – att unga vuxna med höga ADHD-symtom i högre grad än de med låga ADHD-symtom utsattes för alla fyra viktimiseringstyper. Dessutom fanns könsskillnader i utsatthet inom grupperna med låga respektive höga ADHD-symtom. Sammanfattningsvis är höga ADHD-symtom en riskfaktor för utsatthet och en människas könstillhörighet är relaterat till vilken typ av viktimisering hen utsätts för.

Abstract [en]

This study examined differences in victimization between young adults with high and low ADHD symptoms and any potential gender differences. Data from the RESUMÉ study were used. RESUME contains 2,500 young adults between the ages 20 and 24 years. Data on physical-, verbal- and sexual victimization and property crimes were collected through questionnaires and interviews. The results showed that young adults with high ADHD symptoms to a greater extent than those with low symptoms were subject to all four kinds of victimization. There were also sex differences in victimization within the low and high ADHD symptom groups. In summary, high ADHD symptoms increases the risk for victimization and the type of abuse a person is exposed to vary across sex.
