Intimate partner violence (IPV) declined from about 2.1 million victimizations in 1993 to around 907,000 in 2010, according to a report released recently by the Justice Department’s Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS). This was a 64% decline in the rate of IPV over the 18 year data collection period. The estimates in this report are based on data from BJS’s National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS), which collects information from victims of crime.
