Today CDC releases “Prevalence and Characteristics of Sexual Violence, Stalking, and Intimate Partner Violence Victimization — National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey, United States” using 2011 data.
On average, nearly 20 people per minute are victims of physical violence by an intimate partner in the U.S. Nearly 2 million women are raped in a year and over 7 million women and men are victims of stalking in a year.
