Alaska Victimization Survey: Research on Violence Against Women in Alaska

Alaska Victimization Survey results for the Nome Census Area, released on February 11, 2015, show that more than half of adult women in the Nome Census Area have experienced intimate partner violence or sexual violence or both. For details of the survey, see the Nome Census Area page, the summary of findings, and the Powerpoint presentation.

The Alaska Victimization Survey (AVS) provides estimates of intimate partner violence and sexual violence experienced by adult women in Alaska. Statewide estimates were produced in 2010 and regional estimates were produced in 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014. The AVS is an ongoing survey.
