The purpose of my report is to outline the victims of sexual crimes, sexual harassment and dating violence among Japanese youth by analyzing the 6th survey (2005) of 'The National Survey of Sexual Behavior of Japanese Youth'. As regards the victims of sexual crimes, we have conducted surveys since the 4th survey (1993). The surveys show that these crimes have been committed by someone except boy/girl friends. Therefore, in the 6th survey, and to the past questions, we added a new question about dating violence which include emotional abuse, physical abuse and sexual abuse in a dating relationship.
