The results of the 2011 Victimization Survey for the Bristol Bay region will be introduced at a press conference on Wednesday, October 12, at 12:00 noon in Dillingham. This survey was conducted in the  Bristol Bay region through a contract with the Council on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault (CDVSA). A brief overview of the survey will be followed by a presentation of the data and a discussion of the results.

This victimization survey was conducted in the Dillingham Census Area, the Lake and Peninsula Borough, and the Bristol Bay Borough from April 2011 to June 2011.  The survey was designed to measure the lifetime and past year exposure to sexual violence and intimate partner violence.
