Domestic Violence

From the

Domestic violence was responsible for 16 percent of emergency room assault visits during 2002 in Oklahoma, including 35 percent of visits by women and 3 percent by men, according to a federal report released Friday.

In addition, a survey conducted between 2001 and 2003 revealed that 5.9 percent of women aged 18-44 reported a domestic violence injury during the previous year, according to the findings of researchers in Oklahoma that are outlined in a U.S. Department of Health and Human Services publication.

The findings demonstrate the need for public services for victims of domestic violence in the state, including law enforcement and programs that help women get out of dangerous situations, according to Sheryll Brown, an epidemiologist at the Oklahoma Department of Health who spearheaded the domestic violence survey.
