Alaska Victimization Survey results to be released Friday, August 26 at UAA

Victimization Survey Results for Anchorage
This press conference will introduce the results of the 2015 victimization survey conducted in the Municipality of Anchorage by the UAA Justice Center through a contract with the Alaska Council on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault (CDVSA).

The survey was designed to measure lifetime and past-year experiences of sexual violence and intimate partner violence.  A brief overview of the survey will be followed by a presentation of the data and a discussion of the results.  The 2015 results will also be compared to results from the 2010-11 victimization surveys.

In addition, results from the 2015 survey of sexual violence against UAA students will also be presented.  Conducted in the spring of 2016, this survey measured the prevalence of sexual misconduct and sexual assault against UAA students, both on and off campus.
