Content

This webinar is designed as a descriptive and non-technical introduction to national sources of data on intimate partner violence (IPV) victimization in the United States. Target audience members are practitioners and others who are not primarily engaged in conducting their own research but are interested in learning more about the data systems that inform policy. The webinar focuses on three data collections: the Uniform Crime Reporting Program’s National Incident-Based Reporting System (UCR-NIBRS), the National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS), and the National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey (NISVS). In particular this webinar will include:

  1. A discussion of each of the three national IPV victimization data sources including:

    1. How the data are collected

    2. How each can inform IPV research and policy

    3. The strengths and limitations of the data source

  2. A discussion of online resources and tools to assist practitioners who might be interested in exploring these data on their own

  3. An opportunity for discussion and questions from participants
