National Domestic Violence Statistics
For the twelfth consecutive year, on September 13, 2017, the National Network to End Domestic Violence conducted a one-day unduplicated count of adults and children seeking domestic violence service in the United States. This annual census documents the number of individuals who sought services in a single 24-hour period, as well as the types of services requested, the number of service requests that went unmet due to a lack of resources, and the issues and barriers that domestic violence programs face as they strive to provide services to victims of domestic violence.
This report is instrumental in raising awareness about domestic violence and the incredible work that local domestic violence programs do every day.
