This project uses data from the National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey to understand the experiences of poly-victimization exposure including intimate partner violence, sexual violence, and stalking among men and women in the United States. This project will provide needed data to guide policy decisions related to violence against women and violence prevention, including population-level data for various racial/ethnic and gender groups to inform culturally-specific programs and services.
