Domestic Violence Statistic
Let me first include a caveat: don't always trust domestic violence statistic, as they can be very missleading indeed. Some of the abuse statistics have even managed to come to the conclusion that there are more men terrified of being killed by their female partners than vice versa and that far from there being a very real issue with male to female abuse and violence, the actual facts (shown by warped statistics) point to the men being by far the most victims of the genders. While anyone who has worked with domestic abuse victims and survivors for many years knows, yes, there are male victims of abuse, and each and every one of these needs validation, support and help, but for each of these, there are countless mothers and children who literally flee for their lives for real fear of death from their parters or ex-partners.
So please, take any form of domestic violence statistic with a pinch of salt. They were not written in stone and are as fallable as the research questions asked.
After that tirade and warning, here are some of the domestic violence statistics which seem to be consistently researched and always with much the same response (and which, as someone who has spent many years working with domestic violence victims and survivors, ring true):

Hampton et al., 1999
