General Trends and Sex Differences. Journal of American College Health, 59 8: In fact, there is no evidence for differences in self-injury by socioeconomic status and very little research supports differences by race or ethnicity. In truth, however, this gender divide is not always supported.
Studies either tend to find that females and males self-injure at the same rates or that females are a little more likely to injure than males, but not a lot. What does seem to vary by gender is age of onset, length of time self-injuring and methods of injuring.
In general, studies find that females are more likely to start younger and to injure longer, using forms, like cutting, that can be more serious than some of the forms males use, like punching.
Males are more likely than females to report a social component e. Studies of NSSI in transgender or agendered individuals are rare since it can be so difficult to gather enough data to make inferences in these populations. Of all of the demographic characteristics studied, the only thing that consistently shows up as a potent predictor of self-injury is sexual orientation.
Studies consistently find that reporting oneself as bisexual or being sexually attracted to males and females equally is a really strong risk factor for self-injury, especially among females. Being lesbian or gay does not seem to carry much elevated risk above and beyond being straight. Why we see such a strong association for bisexual females and self-injury is unclear, but has begun to be investigated by researchers in the self-injury field with hopes that we might understand and intervene in supportive ways.

Journal of Adolescent Health, 53, 1, This made initial studies of self-injury prevalence difficult. However, over the past half decade or so, an increasingly large and diverse set of studies have given us a reasonably good picture of self-injury prevalence.
