Subject:*Data Available*: Second Youth Internet Safety Survey (YISS- 2)

The National Data Archive on Child Abuse and Neglect (NDACAN) at Cornell University is pleased to announce an enhanced release of this dataset: Title: Second Youth Internet Safety Survey (YISS- 2) Dataset Number: 159 Investigator(s): David Finkelhor, Ph.D.; Kimberly J. Mitchell, Ph.D.; Janis Wolak, J.D. Second Youth Internet Safety Survey (YISS- 2) dataset description page and ordering link (There is no charge to access these data): http://www.ndacan.cornell.edu/Ndacan/Datasets/Abstracts/DatasetAbstract_159.html Dataset Abstract: The Second Youth Internet Safety Survey (YISS-2) was conducted in 2005 and designed to update and expand upon the previous Youth Internet Safety Survey (YISS-1) conducted in 1999/2000. This study involves telephone interviews with a national sample of 1500 youth Internet users, ages 10 to 17. The interviews measure changes in the frequency and nature of unwanted online exposures to sexual solicitations and pornography since YISS-1. Additionally, YISS-2 goes beyond the findings of YISS-1 by including more details about the impact on youth of unwanted exposure to sexual solicitations and pornography and the use and efficacy of filtering and blocking software. Findings from YISS-2 showed increased proportions of youth Internet users were encountering unwanted exposures to sexual material and online harassment, but decreased proportions were receiving unwanted sexual solicitations. The First Youth Internet Safety Survey is also available from NDACAN: dataset number 134 .
