Abstract
This report examines the association between intimate partner violence (IPV), specifically counts of reported aggravated assaults, and unemployment figures before, during, and after the Great Recession in South Carolina.The intent of this work is to examine the association between IPV 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 IPV 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.
