Abstract [en]

We examined differences in demographics/socioeconomics, lifestyle, and social support between victimized/nonvictimized men, and identified and quantified variables associated with social support. The participants were 520 men and the design cross-sectional. The univariate analyses showed that victims reported higher social support; were more often younger, blue-collar/low white-collar workers; were on student allowances/unemployment; were financially strained; were smokers; and more often had secondary school education than nonvictims. The regressions showed that among victims unemployment and depression were associated with reduced social support; smoking, threatening/aggressive language, and violent threats were associated with increased social support. We may have provided new insights into the social support experiences of victimized men.
