Alaska Victimization Survey: Research on Violence Against Women in Alaska

The Alaska Victimization Survey (AVS) provides estimates of intimate partner violence and sexual violence experienced by adult women in Alaska. More than 10,000 women have now participated in the Alaska Victimization Survey. This annual survey was started in 2010 with funding from the Alaska Council on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault (CDVSA). A statewide survey was conducted in that year. Regional surveys were conducted from 2011 to 2014 (Anchorage, Fairbanks, Juneau, Bristol Bay, Kodiak, Yukon-Kuskokwim, Matanuska-Susitna, Kenai, Ketchikan, Nome, Sitka, North Slope, and Aleutians). A new statewide survey was conducted in 2015. Results will be released during the 2016 legislative session.

To date, results from the Alaska Victimization Survey have been cited more than 275 times in the media.
