An Analysis of Male Victimisation – January 1999

Home Office Research Study 191 (HORS 191)

Domestic Violence: Findings From A New British Crime Survey Self Completion Questionnaire

A Result Summary Of The Completed Questionnaire:

4.2% of women and 4.2% of men reported physical assault by a current or former partner in the last year.

5.9% of women and 4.9% of men reported physical assault and/or frightening threats in the last year.

Women were twice as likely as men to report injury in the last year.

6.6 million incidents were estimated in 1995, of which 2.9 million resulted in some injury.

Women were three times more likely to suffer frightening threats.

12% of women and 5% of men reported assault on three or more occasions.

23% of women and 15% men reported physical assault across a life-time.

26% of women and 17% of men reported assault and/or frightening threats. across a life-time.

16-24 age group reported assaults most

Pushing, grabbing, etc were the most common forms of assault, but slapping, punching, and kicking were reported in nearly half of cases.

47% of women and 31% of men reported injury although most only minor injury.

Three quarters of chronic victims were female.

99% of assaults against women were by men, 95% of assaults against men were
by women.

Alcohol was identified in 32% of assaults, drugs in 5% at time of interview, women were less likely to be living
with their assailant than men, and chronic victims less likely than intermittent.

Virtually no male victims considered the assaults a crime.

Women, especially chronic victims, were much more likely to agree that they were a ‘victim of domestic violence’ than were men.

Victims who had been injured, frightened or upset were most likely to report.

Incidents perceived as a crime were most likely to be reported to the police.

The Police:

When victims of domestic violence come to police attention, they will be usually referred to Victim Support. Of course,
relatively few male victims report to the police. Interestingly, the survey revealed that the small percentage of male
victims that did come to police attention reported that they were not referred on to Victim Support. This suggests that,
generally, the police did not deal sympathetically with male victims. This perception is supported by the fact that many
male victims reported that they were dissatisfied with responses to them by the police.

    At this time it looks like Drupal is the top blogging platform out there right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?
