Measuring taboo topics: List randomization for gender-based violence
from Sexual Violence Research Initiative
Gender-based violence is notoriously under-reported — for understandable reasons. Experience of violence is highly stigmatized and victims are often shamed. Respondents may be fearful of retaliation if perpetrators and others find out they have disclosed their experiences. There may also be cultural taboos about disclosing violence, which may be seen as a family issue.
