NNEDV's Domestic Violence Counts: National Census of Domestic Violence Services (Census) is an annual noninvasive, unduplicated count of adults and children who seek services from U.S. domestic violence shelter programs during a single 24-hour survey period. Conducted annually by NNEDV since 2006, this Census takes into account the dangerous nature of domestic violence by using a survey designed to protect the confidentiality and safety of victims.
The 2015 Census will take place on September 16, 2015. We are grateful to each domestic violence program that participates! To learn more about the previous year’s reports, click on the links below. Watch this space for the new report in 2016!
