Domestic Violence Counts is a national census of domestic violence shelters and services. The Domestic Violence Counts census is an annual noninvasive, unduplicated count of adults and children who seek services from domestic violence shelter programs in the United States during a single 24-hour survey period.

Conducted annually by the National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV) since 2006, the Domestic Violence Counts census report takes into account the dangerous nature of domestic violence by using a survey designed to protect the confidentiality and safety of victims.

The 11th annual Census Day took place on September 14, 2016. We are grateful to each domestic violence program that participated! Read this and past year’s reports by clicking the links below:
