CPR conducted the National Violence Against Women Survey in which national probability samples of 8,000 women and 8,000 men were asked about their experiences with all forms of violence - physical, sexual, threats of violence, and stalking - over the lifespan.  In addition, CPR has completed numerous studies of child abuse and neglect (see Child Abuse and Neglect).  CPR has also conducted numerous studies on specific topics related to intimate partner violence, including research relating IPV to women's requests for exemptions to child support requirements, approaches to providing serves to victims of IPV in social service agencies, and approaches to be used when mediating with couples for whom IPV is a concern.
