ABSTRACT

This current study has a purpose to examine whether various correlates factors influence on the college students’ perception of stalking. Especially, this study has a focus on examining the impact of the factors such as gender, gender of the victim/offender, and previous relationship between the victim/offender in a stalking setting. Further, this study seeks to determine what factors may influence the intention of reporting a stalking incidence to the police. To fulfill the study purpose this study developed six separate multi-variate regression models with a set of data collected from three universities located in different provinces (n=182). Regression results indicate that college students generally have an general agreement on understanding the categories of stalking behaviors. However, in terms of police reporting behavior, this study found that college students are more likely to report a stalking if the victim and offender previous relationship are a divorced couple, or the victims’ gender are female. The Implications, contributions of this current study and directions for the future study are discussed.
