Alaska Victimization Survey: Research on Violence Against Women in Alaska

Alaska Victimization Survey results for Municipality of Anchorage released Friday, August 26 at UAA

Results from the 2015 Alaska Victimization Survey for the Municipality of Anchorage will be released at a press conference at Lucy Cuddy Hall on the campus of University of Alaska Anchorage on Friday, August 26, at 1:30 PM.

The survey, conducted by the UAA Justice Center through a contract with the Alaska Council on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault (CDVSA), 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 2010–2011 victimization surveys.

Results from a 2015 survey which measured the prevalence of sexual misconduct and sexual assault against UAA students, both on and off campus, will also be presented.
