About one in six women experienced completed or attempted rape during their first year of college at one school in upstate New York, according to a new study.

The report's lead author said the results add to existing evidence suggesting the hype surrounding campus rape is not overblown. There may even be a greater risk of rape during the first year of college, she told Reuters Health."We are now starting to have independent data emerge from different campuses and from different assessment settings," said Kate Carey of the Brown University School of Public Health in Providence, Rhode Island. "They are starting to converge to support the general notion that about one in every five women in college is going to experience sexual assault."



For the new study, the researchers recruited first-year women aged 18 to 21 years old with the help of mailings, flyers, word of mouth and existing research pools.
