Crime in England and Wales 2006/07 – Intimate Violence

A recent Home Office Bulletin includes a chapter on the extent of intimate violence revealed by the results of the
2006/07 British Crime Survey (BCS) self-completion questionnaire module. In addition, some findings from the earlier
2004/05 and 2005/06 BCS modules are reported for comparison or to supplement the 2006/07 BCS findings.

Intimate violence is defined as comprising any domestic abuse, including partner or family non-physical abuse; threats;
force; sexual assault; and stalking. Partner abuse refers to non-physical abuse, threats, force, sexual assault or stalking
carried out by a current or former partner. This briefing is concerned only with non-sexual partner abuse.

The findings of the 2006/07 BCS for partner abuse generally follow a similar pattern to the earlier BCS supplementary modules. Results have been grouped into those relating to the period for respondents since the age of 16, and for the last year (preceding the survey). Generally, women were at more risk for most types of non-sexual partner abuse, although the differences between men and women were less marked in relation to experiences in the last year, male victims accounting for 48.6% of total victims of severe force.

It appears that men are increasingly at risk from abusive partners.
