National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey: 2015 Data Brief

Before I head out of the country for the week, I leave you with newly published data from the CDC’s National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey: 2015 Data Brief. There’s a lot of information to sort through, but a few highlights:

  • In the U.S., over 1 in 3 (36.4% or 43.6 million) women experienced contact sexual violence, physical violence, and/or stalking by an intimate partner during their lifetime.
  • In the U.S., about 1 in 3 (33.3% or 37.2 million) men experienced contact sexual violence, physical violence, and/or stalking by an intimate partner during their lifetime.
  • Both women and men experience these forms of violence, but a greater number of women experienced several types of violence examined. For instance, during their lifetime, 1 in 5 women experienced completed or attempted rape; 1 in 6 women were stalked; and 1 in 4 experienced contact sexual violence, physical violence, and/or stalking by an intimate partner and reported some form of intimate partner violence-related impact.
