These changes in the measurement of DV revealed a substantial sex category difference in prevalence estimates, with female students reporting a significantly higher frequency of DV victimization (either physical or sexual) compared with male students (20.9% vs 10.4%).
Clayton et al report similar prevalence estimates from the 2015 data (21.4% vs 9.6%).
Live Cartoon CEO Shohei Tsuji, covered head to toe in motion sensors, demonstrated the company's newest product by showing off his best dance moves while a pretty female anime character mimicked his steps on screen.
The system, Tsuji said, could be used by retailers who want to interact with customers by having the cutesy character engage passersby while the person who controls the character remains out of sight.'With this system you can have animated characters talking directly to customers,' he said.
The NMUPD measure is also not specific to a particular drug (ie, stimulant versus pain medication).Because NMUPD is likely to co-occur with other drug use, other substances (ie, cigarettes, alcohol, marijuana, and other illicit drugs) were added to the adjusted models; the prevalence ratios remained significant for the most part, albeit with smaller point estimates, suggesting some unique ways in which NMUPD may be related to violence victimization.Because the study was cross-sectional, it was not possible to make causal inferences in the analyses.Citation: Beas R, Anduaga-Beramendi A, Maticorena-Quevedo J, Vizcarra-Melgar J, Mario C.

In 2013, with input from DV experts and practitioners, the physical DV survey item was revised to add frequency of experiencing such victimization.
