Many efforts are currently underway to help us learn more about sexual violence. The more we know about the issue, the better equipped we will be to stop it—before it happens.
One such activity is the CDC’s National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey (NISVS). This ongoing, nationally representative survey collects information from adult women and men in the U.S. to better describe and monitor the magnitude of intimate partner violence (IPV), sexual violence, and stalking.
Findings from NISVS are available for communities to access. Critical information about IPV, sexual violence, stalking, and the physical and emotional impact of these forms of violence are included in summary reports, fact sheets, and other resource tools.
