Faculty discusses the findings of BJS statisticians contained in the Special Report, below, which examines both the NCVS 10-year aggregate IPV data from 2003 to 2012 and the apparent 67% decline in IPV since 1994 (from 9.8 per 1,000 in 1994 to 3.2 per 1,000 in 2012 for persons 12 years and older). Faculty examines the NCVS data and compare it with incidence/prevalence of IPV from other sources, concluding that the apparent decline is not an accurate depiction of the rates of IPV.
