This study examined the relationship between victimization & both suicidal & violent behaviors among 1569 public high school students in New York State. Based on responses to the 1997 Youth Risk Behavior Survey, students were divided into 4 groups: no suicidal or violent behavior, suicidal behavior only, violent behavior only, & both suicidal & violent behaviors. Analysis indicated that all categories of suicidal/violent behaviors were more frequent among those who had been victimized. (25 refs)
