The report describes overall prevalence of sexual violence, stalking, and intimate partner violence victimization by sex; racial/ethnic variation in prevalence; how the type of perpetrator varies by violence type; and the age at which victimization typically begins for each violence type.
An estimated 15.2% of women and 5.7% of men have been a victim of stalking during their lifetimes.
Many victims of sexual violence, stalking, and intimate partner violence were first victimized at a young age.
Among female victims of completed rape, an estimated 78.7% were first raped before age 25 years (40.4% before age 18 years).
Finally, among victims of contact sexual violence, physical violence, or stalking by an intimate partner, an estimated 71.1% of women and 58.2% of men first experienced these or other forms of intimate partner violence before age 25 years (23.2% of female victims and 14.1% of male victims before age 18 years). However, the results also indicate that many men experience sexual violence, stalking, and, in particular, physical violence by an intimate partner.
Because of the broad range of short- and long-term consequences known to be associated with these forms of violence, the public health burden of sexual violence, stalking, and intimate partner violence is substantial.
