Violence in  a Relationship is Never Justified


Research and Statistics 

The Coalition has participated in numerous research partnerships with professors at the University of New Hampshire and an epidemiologist from the NH Division of Public Health Services and the Institute for Health Policy and Practice at UNH.  Notable collaborations have included replication of the National Violence Against Women survey within New Hampshire, producing the first state specific lifetime prevalance data for domestic and sexual violence.  Electronic copies are available by clicking on the highlighted links below.

Coalition Statistics:
The 13 member programs of the Coalition collect data regarding the services provided to victims every year. These statistics show the number of people assisted by these agencies. The number of victims assisted does not represent the number of people experiencing domestic and sexual violence and stalking each year, since we know that many people do not reach out for help, or may not seek assistance until long after the assault.
