CDC Releases Intimate Partner Violence Report

An excellent new resource for background and data on what is a public health as well as a criminal justice problem--domestic and intimate partner violence--is now available from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).  Based on a nationally representative, random survey of over 16,500 adults (both women and men) conducted in 2010, Intimate Partner Violence in the United States - 2010 is now freely available on the CDC website.  A publication of the CDC's National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, Division of Violence Prevention, the report covers the prevalence, frequency, demographics, and the impact in terms of physical and mental health, of physical and sexual violence, stalking, and psychological aggression by an intimate partner.  Anyone interested in domestic violence issues or related research should check out this new report.
