This study focuses on the prevalence of child abuse, that is to say, the number of individuals who have been abused at one point in their lives. On the other hand, it focuses on the incidence of child abuse, that is to say, the number of young people who have experienced some form of child abuse during the past twelve months. Between December 2005 and April 2006, 1.845 pupils of secundary schools took part in the study by completing a questionnaire.
