The National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey (NISVS)

The CDC's Injury Center developed the National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey (NISVS) to collect accurate and reliable incidence and prevalence estimates for intimate partner violence, sexual violence, dating violence, and stalking victimization. The findings from NISVS are the most up-to-date information on the incidence and prevalence of sexual violence in the United States to date.
