In order to support local and statewide violence prevention practitioners, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have developed overview brochure and supporting fact sheets about the National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey (NISVS) that assesses experiences of intimate partner violence, sexual violence, and stalking among adult women and men in the United States.
In addition to the fact sheet about the 2010 summary findings and findings about victimization by sexual orientation, there a customizable fact sheet template and instructions on how to create a custom fact sheet.
Check out recordings of these PreventConnect web conferences about NISVS where you can hear from the researchers and advocates discussing the implications of the findings:
- Findings on victimization by sexual orientation: Implications for policy
- Findings on Victimization by Sexual Orientation: Implications for Preventing Sexual Violence and IPV in LBGT Communities
- Findings from the National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey: Implications for Prevention
