Since 1981, October has been commemorated as National Domestic Violence Prevention Month. The observance serves to educate about the prevention of domestic abuse or intimate partner violence (IPV).


  • On average, nearly 20 people per minute are physically abused by an intimate partner in the United States. During one year, this equates to more than 10 million women and men.

  • 1 in 4 women have been victims of severe physical violence by an intimate partner in their lifetime.

  • On a typical day, there are more than 20,000 phone calls placed to domestic violence hotlines nationwide.

  • Intimate partner violence accounts for 15% of all violent crime.

  • Women between the ages of 18-24 are most commonly abused by an intimate partner.

Intimate partner violence is a serious problem that has lasting and harmful effects on individuals, families, and communities. The goal for IPV prevention is to stop it from happening in the first place.
