TDV = Teen dating violence.

PR = Prevalence ratio.

CI = Confidence interval.

* Fasted 24+ hours, taken diet aids, or vomited to lose weight; these categories were combined for males due to the small sample size.

± Analysis adjusted for age, and prior abuse [bullying victimization, physical and sexual (non-dating) abuse victimization before age 18, including being punched, kicked, choked, or receiving a more serious physical punishment from a parent or other adult guardian before age 18 (1 question) and being touched in a sexual place or being forced to touch another person when they did not want to before age 18 (1 question)].
