Domestic Violence: The Facts
The CDC reports that over 1 in 3 women and about 1 in 3 men in the United States experience intimate partner violence in their lifetime. 1 in 3 teens experience dating violence. Those who identify as nonbinary or LGBTQ+ are often even more likely to experience abuse.
Black women are 35% more likely to experience domestic violence than white women.
While people at all income levels experience domestic violence, those earning lower incomes experience domestic violence at higher rates than those with higher household incomes. Women with household incomes of less than $7,500 are 7 times as likely as women with household incomes over $75,000 to experience domestic violence. (Source)
