Intimate-partner domestic violence in the US: Costs, consequences, causes and possible solutions

from National Science Foundation

The U.S. Department of Justice estimates that U.S. residents 12 years of age or older were victims of domestic violence in more than 1.1 million cases in 2016. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that more than one in three women in the U.S. have been victims of rape, physical violence or stalking by an intimate partner. Intimate-partner violence was involved in more than half of female homicides for which circumstances could be determined. In addition to the physical and psychological costs to victims, the economic costs of intimate-partner violence — in lost earnings, lost productivity and healthcare costs — are substantial, estimated by the CDC in 2003 to reach nearly $6 billion per year. more
