National Survey on Teen Relationships and Intimate Violence (STRiV)

NORC is conducting the first comprehensive survey of teen dating violence in the United States. This study is sponsored by the National Institute of Justice. The goal is to understand how widespread dating violence (TDV) and adolescent relationship aggression (ARA) is among adolescents and teenagers in the U.S. With this information, researchers and practitioners will be able to design and implement effective programs to prevent dating violence. Unfortunately, current estimates of dating violence are incomplete and sometimes contradictory. This survey, which is conducted with a random sample of households in the U.S., provides representative estimates of the prevalence of dating violence.

NORC is working with GFKextlink to conduct the study with an online panel of respondents.
