Proposed Project: Coordinated Community Response to Prevent Intimate Partner Violence—NEW—National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
A random digit dial survey will be conducted with 12,000 male and female adults in the communities of ten experimental sites and ten control sites (600 per site). The survey will determine whether adding resources to a community to develop a coordinated community response to intimate partner violence (IPV), leads to increased knowledge about IPV such as where to go for help and how to assist a victim, child witness and/or perpetrator of IPV. A base survey instrument will be administered along with an addendum from the sites that wish to address other research needs in their experiment and control communities.
While previous surveys such as the National Violence Against Women Survey (1996) have collected information on intimate partner violence, no previous survey has explored the effects of a coordinated community response, enhanced services, and public awareness campaigns between experimental and control sites.
Interviews will be conducted with persons at residential phone numbers selected using random digit dialing. No more than one respondent per household will be selected, and each sample member will complete just one interview. Non-residential numbers are ineligible for the sample and will not be interviewed. Female interviewers will be used and bi-lingual Spanish interviewers will conduct interviews in Spanish to reduce language barriers to participation. There is no cost to respondents.
|Respondents||Number of respondents||Number of responses/respondent||Average burden per response (in hours)||Total burden (in hours)|
|Individuals interviewed (main qz)||6,000||1||13/60||1,300|
|Individuals interviewed (main qx plus addendum questions)||6,000||1||16/60||1,600|
