YISS-2 Unwanted Sexual Exposure and Solicitation (USES)


This set of screener questions was designed for the First Youth Internet Safety Study and also used in the current study. This series of nine yes/no questions is designed to identify youth experiences with unwanted exposure to sexual solicitation, harassment, and pornography on the Internet in the past year. Any positive response triggers a series of detailed follow-up questions designed to provide context regarding a specific experience.
