Why Does the Data Vary and How To Interpret It?
When it comes to workplace sexual harassment, no two studies will align perfectly. However, the variances in many surveys and polls done by both government institutions and advocate groups vary, for the most part, by single digits. What does this mean? It means that workplace sexual harassment is a real thing and is happening every day across various industries.
Some industries, like the food and service environment, tend to have higher numbers while others, the medical field for example, tend to have lower ones. Factors like age, education and region definitely impact the data and it helps one understand why a younger, lower education demographic in one industry would have more incidents than the medical field. That being said, the averages and the presence of workplace sexual harassment is constant across practically every industry.
