Domestic Violence Counts 2013: National Census of Domestic Violence Services (Census)

Who should I contact if I have any questions about this report?

What is the name of the report?

When was the survey conducted?

Can we get data for a specific city or county?

  • No. For confidentiality and safety reasons, we only provide state-level aggregate reports.

How can we interpret the data?

Compared to last year, the number of survivors who sought services increased. Does this mean that the number of domestic violence victims has increased?

  • Although the actual 2013 number is higher compared to Domestic Violence Counts 2012, increased demand for services does not necessarily mean that prevalenceor incidence is increasing. Over 66,000 adult and child victims were served in one day in 2013 compared to an almost identical participation rate and number of local programs from 2012. This increased demand for services may be due in part to economic barriers, effective outreach and education reaching more victims, and other factors.  

Is the economy causing more domestic violence?

  • A bad economy does not cause domestic violence, nor does a good economy stop domestic violence. In homes where domestic violence exists, however, job loss and economic stress and scarcity can exacerbate existing domestic violence. For more information, please refer to NNEDV's handout, The Impact of the Economy on Domestic Violence.
