The Alaska Victimization Survey is conducted annually by the State of Alaska Council on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault and the University of Alaska Anchorage Justice Center.

The survey 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 (Anchorage, Fairbanks, Juneau, and Bristol Bay), 2012 (Kodiak, Sitka, and Yukon-Kuskokwim), and 2013 (Matanuska-Susitna, Kenai Peninsula, and Ketchikan).

Support for the Alaska Victimization Survey is provided by the Alaska Council on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault through the Governor’s Choose Respect initiative and the Alaska State Legislature.
