NIJ New Report Released on American Indians and Alaska Natives Experiences with Violence and Victimization

NIJ published the latest research report examining the prevalence of intimate partner and sexual violence against American Indian and Alaska Native women and men.  Using a nationally representative sample from the 2010 National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey, the report provides estimates of sexual violence, physical violence by intimate partners, stalking, and psychological aggression by intimate partners. It also provides estimates of interracial and intraracial victimizations and briefly examines the impact of violence on the victims.
