The CDC just released a VERY comprehensive National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey (NISVS) State Summary 2010-2012.  Below is a link with highlights for national data and Delaware-specific data. 

An important thing to notice is that the CDC has started reporting IPV prevalence in terms of ‘impact’ which truly highlights the disparity between men and women. 

Please note: Delaware does not have a lot of the ‘breakdown’ data because the samples are too small and were not statistically reliable.
