Studies on Domestic Violence

End Domestic Abuse Wisconsin -- formerly the Wisconsin Coalition Against Domestic Violence -- conducted a study about rates of domestic violence in the State of Wisconsin in 2011 and 2012.

That study found:  

  • There were 89 Domestic Violence Deaths in Wisconsin from 2011 to 2012.
  • Perpetrators of domestic violence homicides were overwhelmingly male -- 72% in 2011 and 86% in 2012.
  • In 2012, nearly one-quarter of all domestic violence homicide victims were children killed by their father or other adult male household member.
  • In 2012, about half the homicides related to intimate partner violence happened after the relationship ended or when one person was trying to leave the relationship. 
  • Domestic abuse does not discriminate by age -- Victims in the report ranged in age from less than one year old to 84 years old.
