Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) before, during, and after the Great Recession : findings from South Carolina
Abstract
The intent of this work is to examine the association between intimate partner violence and unemployment before, during, and after the Great Recession. As unemployment statistics are oftentimes the primary metrics cited when examining economic downturn, unemployment also has spillover effects that negatively impact families – this includes the potential for an increase intimate partner violence due to the lack of employment. This project will measure and assess what effect size and statistical association, if any exists, between these two variables.
