Intimate Partner Violence in the United States – 2010 is a new report describing data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey (NISVS). This report presents detailed information describing the public health burden of intimate partner violence (IPV) in the United States, including an in-depth look at the scope of IPV and its far-ranging consequences. The report shows younger adults, racial/ethnic minorities, those with lower incomes, and those who have had recent food or housing insecurity experience higher rates of IPV. While many men experience IPV, women are disproportionately affected.
