Professor Sarah Rogers Published in Violence Against Women
Incoming Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice and Criminology, Sarah Rogers, co-authored a paper titled, “Physical Health, Mental Health, and Fear of Crime Among College Students: A Consideration of Sex Differences” which has been published online in Violence Against Women.
This article examines how physical health and mental health affect college students’ fear of crime. Few studies have examined the influence of fear of crime on both objective and subjective measures of physical and mental health and—to our knowledge—none has examined how health measures vary by sex in the United States. In addition, most of the existing research targets older individuals, rather than college students. Using the ACHA-NCHA data set (American College Health Association-National College Health Assessment), we expand the fear of crime literature by examining both subjective and objective physical andmental health measures among college-aged men and women.
