Census: Domestic Violence Counts
Census 2012 Report
For the seventh consecutive year, NNEDV conducted a one-day, unduplicated count of adults and children seeking domestic violence services in the U.S. on September 12, 2012. This annual census documents the number of individuals who sought services in a single 24-hour period, as well as the types of services requested, the number of service requests that went unmet because of lack of resources, and the issues and barriers that domestic violence programs face as they strive to provide services to victims of domestic violence.
The full Domestic Violence Counts 2012 report is available below, along with a one-page national summary (in both English and Spanish) and individual state and territory summaries.
