"Today, CDC’s National Center for Injury Prevention and Control has released a report brief highlighting National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey (NISVS) data from 2015.
The 2015 report brief shows the prevalence of sexual violence, stalking, and intimate partner violence. It contains similar findings to previous NISVS data sets, suggesting that the survey’s measures are reliable. Understanding the prevalence of sexual and intimate partner violence is critical to advancing prevention efforts.
...Findings from NISVS help demonstrate that sexual violence, stalking, and intimate partner violence are serious public health issues, and can help identify priority target populations for prevention."
