Today the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has released a report from the National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey (NISVS) that includes national and state-level findings from data collected from 2010-2012 on sexual violence, intimate partner violence, and stalking. The National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey 2010-2012 State Report includes is accompanied by a fact sheet that includes implications and key findings. The report identifies how persistent sexual violence is, that it starts at a young age, and has a great deal of impact on survivors.
CALCASA’s national project PreventConnect will host a web conference on Wednesday, May 17, 2017, where the CDC will be describing the findings of the report and PreventConnect will explore the implications for prevention of domestic violence and sexual violence.
This report offers a wide variety of data about sexual violence, intimate partner violence, and stalking, including information about race and ethnicity, type of perpetrator, and health impacts associated with victimization. NISVS estimates are based on data from 41,174 phone interviews (both cell phone and landline) conducted between January 2010 and December 2012.
