This report is a compilation of statistical data maintained by the Bureau of Justice Statistics and the Federal Bureau of Investigation on violence between people who have an intimate relationship -- spouses, exspouses, boyfriends, girlfriends, and former boyfriends and girlfriends. The data is based on information gathered from victims, law enforcement agencies, hospital emergency departments, and those convicted of crimes against intimates. The violent offenses encompass crimes such as murder, rape, sexual assault, and simple assault. Intimate violence predominantly affects women as victims.
