Proposed Project

Understanding Relationship Dynamics and Conflict Survey—New—National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

Intimate partner violence (IPV) is a substantial public health problem in the United States. Over a third of women and over a quarter of men have experienced rape, physical violence, and/or stalking by an intimate partner (Black, et al., 2011). Recognition of the importance and prevalence of this issue has fueled research to examine the causes, correlates, and outcomes of IPV over the past several decades.

The proposed data collection will be used to identify classes of IPV perpetrators based on shared characteristics such as their personal attributes, risk factors, relationship characteristics, and characteristics of the violence they commit. The study will collect information to ascertain which factors or groups of factors may influence violence perpetration that occurs within adult intimate partner relationships.

Data will be collected through an online screener of up to 8,600 respondents and survey of 2,000 Mechanical Turk (MT) workers and an Start Printed Page 18650in-person survey of 210 incarcerated individuals. A purposive sample of participants will be chosen from each group. Gay and lesbian individuals will be oversampled in the MT group. The incarcerated group will be equally stratified if individuals are intimate partner violence (IPV) offenders or not. Data analysis will include a combination of Factor Analysis and Latent Profile Analysis.

OMB approval is requested for two years for this new collection. Findings from this data collection will be used to understand and identify classes of intimate partner violence (IPV) perpetrators based on shared characteristics such as their personal attributes, risk factors, relationship characteristics, and characteristics of the violence they commit.

The estimated annual burden hours are 1,322. There are no costs to respondents.
