The Economic Cost of Intimate Partner Violence, Sexual Assault, and Stalking

General Material
Published Date
August, 2017

The physical aspects of violence often result in significant medical costs and time off from work, and psychological effects of violence can have long-term consequences. This fact sheet summarizes findings from research literature on the economic consequences and costs of IPV, sexual assault, and stalking for victims and survivors. The costs highlighted include medical expenditures, lower wages resulting from diminished educational attainment, lost wages from missed work and job loss, debt and poor credit, and costs associated with housing instability.
