National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey 2016/2017: Report on Stalking

General Material
Published Date
January, 2022

This report summarizes the lifetime and 12-month experiences of stalking victims in the United States.

Key Findings:

  • More than 15,000 women and more than 12,000 men completed the NISVS survey between September 2016 and May 2017.
  • Nearly 1 in 3 women (31.2% or about 38.9 million) and about 1 in 6 men (16.1% or nearly 19 million) in the United States reported being stalked at some point in their lifetimes.
  • One in 15 women (6.9% or about 8.6 million) and one in 24 men (4.1% or 4.8 million) in the US reported being stalked in the 12 months prior to the survey.
  • Findings show that some racial/ethnic minority groups bear a greater burden of stalking victimization compared to others—this is especially true of those who identify as American Indian or Alaska Native or multiracial.
