Every day in the U.S., more than three women and one man are murdered by their intimate partners. Intimate partner homicides accounted for 30% of women and 5% of the murders of men.

Domestic violence is one of the most chronically underreported crimes. Only approximately one-quarter of all physical assaults, one-fifth of all rapes, and one-half of all stalkings perpetuated against females by intimate partners are reported to the police.

  • Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System
    The Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) is the world’s largest on-going telephone health survey system, tracking health conditions and risk behaviors in the United States yearly since 1984. The health departments of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam, and the U.S. Virgin Islands conduct the survey. CDC offers two optional modules to the BRFSS, an 8-question module on sexual violence and a 7-question module on intimate partner violence.
