Homicide Data for Specific Populations

In 2013, black females were murdered at a rate two and a half times higher than white females (Violence Policy Center, 2015). Not surprisingly, these homicides mirror the trends for females overall: most homicides against black females are not committed by strangers, but by males known to the victims.

In addressing intimate partner homicide, it is critical to apply an intersectionality framework and address how marginalized groups disproportionally experience violence. Intersectionality is “a frame that recognizes the multiple aspects of identity that enrich our lives and experiences and that compound and complicate oppressions and marginalizations” (Uwujaren & Utt, 2015).

The following list highlights available information on intimate partner homicides among specific populations.
