Domestic Violence Counts: 2009 Census Report

On September 15, 2009, 83 percent of identified domestic violence programs in the United States participated in the 2009 National Census of Domestic Violence Services. The results were published in the NNEDV report: Domestic Violence Counts 2009. A 24-hour census of domestic violence shelters and services.

For the fourth consecutive year, NNEDV conducted the one-day, unduplicated count of adults and children seeking domestic violence services in the U.S., documenting the number of individuals who sought services, 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 are facing as they strive to provide services to victims of domestic violence.
