Adolescent females, physical activity participation and dating violence.

From abstract: "The purpose of this study was to determine if, among adolescent females, experiences of threats of dating violence, actual dating violence and self-esteem levels differed based on physical activity levels and if physical activity was a predictor for decreased threats of dating violence and actual dating violence. The subjects were 244 first-year university females surveyed during the 2001 academic year. All participants completed a demographic survey, Physical Activity Decision Questionnaire, the Severity of Violence Against Women Questionnaire and the Self-Perception Profile for College Students and answered questions about alcohol and marijuana use. Participants were then identified as being active or inactive in physical activities during the senior year of high school based on identification of activity level on the Physical Activity Decision Questionnaire."
