The 2010 National Crime Victimization Survey (Truman, 2011, Table 5) shows only 407,700 female and 101,530 male victims of intimate partner violence: for women that’s less than a tenth of the victims reported in NISVS.) This drop in intimate partner violence against females and steady rate of violence against males raises an interesting policy question.Given that there are many thousands of support programs, Web sites and public-interest media items for female victims of domestic violence, and no programs and only a handful of Web sites for male victims, perhaps males, but not females, have got the message that domestic violence is wrong.The NISVS omission of threats by knife or gun is not only curious, but it flies in the face of the Centers for Disease Control’s own recommendations on data for intimate partner violence (Salzman, T.et al, 1999) The section of that document that covers the victim’s experience of intimate partner violence includes sections on sexual violence, physical violence, threats of physical or sexual violence and “psychological / emotional abuse.” (Salzman, T., 1999, §3.3) 3 But NISVS survey respondents were not asked about being threatened with a knife or gun.(Table 4.7) For men, over 4 out of 10 (2,266,000 or 42.3%) were subjected to severe physical violence.The number of men is smaller, but that is still 2.26 million men.(Cook 2009)(Douglas and Hines, 2011) In 2008 Douglas and Hines conducted the first-ever large-scale national survey of men who sought help for heterosexual physical intimate partner violence.(Douglas and Hines, 2011) Some 302 men were surveyed.
* SUMMARY: According to a 2010 national survey by the Centers for Disease Control and Department of Justice, in the last 12 months more men than women were victims of intimate partner physical violence and over 40% of severe physical violence was directed at men.There is a significant difference between the NVAWS and NISVS surveys, in the number of victims of physical violence (4,741,000 vs. This is consistent with earlier studies showing that between 19 (Straus and Gelles, 1988, Straus, 1995), between 19 (Catalano , 2005) and between 20 (Truman, 2011, Table 6) violence against women dropped but violence against males stayed steady.(As a point of reference, Statistics Canada (2006, 2011) reports that 45.5% of the victims of present or former spousal violence were men.6 In the last 12 months, 20,548,000 men (18.1%) and 16,578,000 (13.9%) women were subjected to psychological aggression.
For women, this was split fairly evenly between expressive aggression and coercive control, while for men, 15.2% were subjected to coercive control and 9.3% to expressive aggression.NISVS did not ask about knife-wielding, but did ask about condoms and name-calling.
