In an attempt to address the gaps found in National and State-level data, with the support of the National Institute of Justice and the Department of Defense, the CDC’s National Center for Injury Prevention and Control launched the National Intimate Partner Violence and Sexual Violence Survey in 2010. As a result, this report highlights the findings.
The objectives of this survey report aim to discuss:
– The prevalence and characteristics of sexual violence, stalking and intimate partner violence;
– Who is most likely to experience these forms of violence;
– The patterns and impact of the violence experienced by specific perpetrators; and
– The health consequences of these forms of violence
