Domestic Violence Counts: 16th Annual Report

The 16th annual Domestic Violence Counts survey day begins Thursday, 9/9 at 8:00 a.m. EDT and ends Friday, 9/10 at 7:59 a.m. EDT.




For the sixteenth consecutive year, on September 9, 2021, the National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV) will conduct our Domestic Violence Counts Survey: a one-day, unduplicated count of adults and children seeking domestic violence services in the United States. This annual survey 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 due to a lack of resources, and the issues and barriers that domestic violence programs face as they strive to provide services to victims of domestic violence.

This annual report is instrumental in raising awareness about domestic violence and the incredible work that local domestic violence programs do every day. Year after year, state and local advocates, national experts, journalists and reporters, and policymakers from both sides of the aisle rely on the report to understand the realities faced by advocates and survivors.
