Domestic violence: Men or Women? – you be the judge

From the NZ Crime and Safety Survey 2009 published by the Ministry of Justice last December, and which the NZ Herald quoted from…

Table B11: Factors associated with the risk of confrontational crime by current partners in 2008

 

So that’s 40% male victims, 60% female victims

Table B12: Factors associated with the risk of confrontational crime by family members / ex-partners in 2008

 

So that’s 48% male victims, 52% female victims

But let’s look at marital status – which is the safest family structure to be in?

For partner violence

 

For ex-partner and family members violence

 

Perhaps the focus should be on family structure, rather than gender!

I rest my case.
