National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey: 2010-2012 State Report

General Material
Published Date
April, 2017

CDC’s National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey (NISVS) is a national telephone survey that gathers data on sexual violence, stalking, and intimate partner violence in the United States. Started in 2010, the survey collects data from adult women and men on past-year and lifetime experiences of violence. By monitoring sexual violence, stalking, and intimate partner violence at the state and national levels, CDC can better understand the size of the problem, characteristics of the violence, and consequences with the ultimate goal of stopping violence before it occurs.

This report provides data for states to help them better understand the extent of intimate partner, sexual violence, and stalking and to inform state and national efforts to better prevent this violence and support victims when it occurs.
