Abstract

Incidence data for intimate partner violence (IPV) at the national and state levels are limited. CDC and the Division of Public Health, Georgia Department of Human Resources (GDHR), analyzed data from the 1995 Georgia Women's Health Survey (GWHS) to 1) estimate the lifetime and annual incidence of physical IPV in Georgia among women aged 15-44 years, 2) examine sociodemographic risk factors for abuse committed during the previous year, and 3) determine the likelihood of injury resulting from IPV. This report summarizes the results of this survey, which indicate that 1) 6% of reproductive-aged women in Georgia had experienced IPV during the previous year, 2) low socioeconomic status was a risk factor for IPV during the previous year, and 3) 63% of women who experienced abuse during the previous year suffered physical injuries.
