Domestic Violence: Global and Regional Estimates of Violence against Women
Scientific data on the prevalence of violence by an intimate partner and violence by someone other than a partner.
The following report presents the first global systematic review of scientific data on the prevalence of two forms of violence against women: violence by an intimate partner (intimate partner violence) and sexual violence by someone other than a partner (non-partner sexual violence). It shows, for the first time, global and regional estimates of the prevalence of these two forms of violence, using data from around the world. Previous reporting on violence against women has not differentiated between partner and non-partner violence.020722-05-Domestic-Violence
