The study found that, excluding murder(!), Scots were almost three times as likely to be assaulted as Americans.
.....senior Scots police officers criticised the study.
The survey concluded that 2,000 Scots were attacked every week. That figure is 10 times the number recorded in official police figures.
The study, based on telephone interviews conducted between 1991 and 2000
the president of the Association of Chief Police Officers in Scotland (Acpos), Peter Wilson, said that the "general picture" of Scotland around the world was "not one of a violent country".
He said: "I would question the compatibility of figures and the methods used in this particular survey because it must be near impossible to compare assault figures from one country to the next based on phone calls.
