Proposed Project

National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey (NISVS)—New—The National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

Intimate partner violence (IPV) and sexual violence (SV) are major public health problems that have serious health consequences and substantial costs for individuals, families, communities and society. Although it is well understood that IPV and SV are significant public health problems, their magnitude is not well understood and prevalence estimates vary considerably, due to under-reporting and non-standard or non-optimal survey methodology.

The NISVS pilot survey will be administered to a random sample of 3000 men and 3000 women ages 18-50. The proposed study is a critical step in the development of a national surveillance system for IPV and SV. The specific aims of this project are to: (1) Provide information that will assist in the selection of specific language to introduce IPV and SV victimization and perpetration in an ongoing national IPV and SV survey, and (2) determine the optimal order for asking questions about IPV (including stalking, physical violence, and emotional abuse) and SV. Three contexts (health, crime, and family conflict) and two question orders (victimization before perpetration and vice versa) will be evaluated to determine the context and order that best facilitates the reporting of victimization and perpetration.

Ultimately, this knowledge will assist the CDC in establishing an ongoing data collection system for monitoring IPV and SV victimization and perpetration.

There are no costs to the respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 1,552.
