Annotation: This report examines the prevalence of violence against American-Indian and Alaska-Native women and men, using data from a large nationally representative sample from the 2010 National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey (NISVS), with a focus on sexual violence, physical violence by intimate partners, stalking, and psychological aggression by intimate partners.
Abstract: It also estimates interracial and interracial victimization and briefly examines the impact of violence. The report estimates that just over four in five American- Indian and Alaska-Native women (84.3 percent) have experienced violence in their lifetime; 56.1 percent have been victims of sexual violence; 55.5 percent have experienced physical violence by an intimate partner; 48.8 percent have experienced stalking; and 66.4 percent have experienced psychological aggression by an intimate partner. Just over four in five American-Indian and Alaska-Native men (81.6 percent) have experienced violence in their lifetime; 27.5 percent have been victims of sexual violence; 43.2 percent have experienced physical violence by an intimate partner; 18.6 percent have experienced stalking and 73 percent have experienced psychological aggression by an intimate partner. Relative to non-Hispanic White-only women, American-Indian and Alaska-Native women are 1.2 time as likely to have experienced violence in their life time and are 1.7 times as likely to have experienced violence in the past year. Relative to non-Hispanic White-only men, American-Indian and Alaska-Native men are 1.3 times as likely to have experienced violence in their lifetime. Data on impacts of violence focus on victims’ concern for their safety, physical injury, missing days at work, and use of various treatment services. Survey methodology is described. 42 tables, 12 figures, approximately 40 references, and appended supplementary data
