Victimization of Domestic Violence

Victimization of Domestic Violence

Prevalence Study on the Magnitude, Nature, Relationships, and Consequences of Victimization and Perpetration (full text only available in Dutch)

Summary

The aim of this substudy is to estimate the nature and magnitude of victimization and perpetration of domestic violence in the Netherlands, based on a self-report study among the Dutch speaking population of 18 years and older, and reporting about changes since the last study in 2010. This study reports on the analyses concerning the nature and magnitude of domestic violence. The following research question was formulated:
Based on self-report, what is the current nature and magnitude of domestic violence in the Netherlands, and how has it developed since the last prevalence study?

On behalf of this research another study was made - 'Prevalence of domestic violence in an online household panel versus a random population sample: A comparison between LISS and CBS' by C. Lauret, R. Veenstra and M. Van Duijn (University of Groningen, 2018).
This report is a comparison between data collected among the LISS (Longitudinal Internet Studies for the Social sciences) online panel of CentERdata on the one hand and a random population sample carried out by the Central Bureau for Statistics (CBS) on the other hand.
The following research question was formulated:
To what extent does the nature and magnitude of domestic violence as measured in the LISS panel deviate from the nature and the magnitude of domestic violence as measured in a random sample from the Dutch population in which there are no people who regularly participate in research through a panel? How can potential differences be explained?
