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.

2010 statewide estimates and regional estimates for 2011, 2012, and 2013 are available on the website.  Results from the 2014 regional survey will be published shortly.
