Multiple-incident victims (n=25) were poorer & more transient, had a history of more frequent victimization other than rape & were significantly more dysfunctional in their personal & interpersonal adjustment than were single-incident victims (n=25). Comparisons of events leading up to & surrounding the current rape for these 2 groups were not significant. Hypotheses concerning the repeated victimization of multiple-incident victims are discussed.
