Dr. Rosay discussed data from both the 2010 and 2015 statewide AVS, as well as data from the 2011 AVS regional survey for Fairbanks. The results from the 2015 Alaska Victimization Survey conducted by the University of Alaska Anchorage Justice Center for the Council on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault (CDVSA) show a decline in intimate partner and sexual violence in Alaska since 2010. While the numbers are getting better, they remain unacceptably high.
