Intimate Partner Violence Surveillance: Uniform Definitions and Recommended Data Elements

Intimate Partner Violence Surveillance: Uniform Definitions and Recommended Data Elements

Intimate Partner Violence Surveillance: Uniform Definitions and Recommended Data Elements, Version 1.0 is intended for voluntary use by individuals and organizations interested in gathering surveillance data on intimate partner violence (IPV). The document is not meant as a set of mandates, but rather is intended to promote and improve consistency of IPV surveillance. If the recommended data elements can be uniformly recorded and the data made available to numerous users, then better estimates of the incidence and prevalence of IPV can be obtained and problems such as data incompatibility and high costs of collecting, linking, and using data can be substantially reduced.
