Correlates of Emotional, Physical, Sexual and Financial Abuse and Potential
neglect in the United States: The National Elder Mistreatment Study” (2010) was
a study that examined the levels and types of abuse acted upon elders within
the country. The study showed that only one in 10 respondents reported when
they were abused in some fashion (Acierno, Hernandez, Amstadter, Resnick,
Steve, Muzzy & Kilpatrick, 2010). Much of this lack of reporting was due to
the same reasons other individuals of other age groups did not report it. Lack
of support by society and previous trauma were the most consistent of the
correlations of abuse types.
Regression analysis in this case was utilized to
show the relationship webs between the types of abuse along with other factors
such as age, race, gender and socioeconomic levels. This is a good tool to use
for studies that involve various factors which can affect other factors by the
relationship shared between them. Regression analysis allows the researcher to study
these relationships in their own uniqueness as well as their dynamic as a whole
for a broader, more defined analysis of the study.
