dc.description.abstract This newsletter article summarizes the methods, data sources, and findings from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's 2017 study about the economic impact of rape on the U.S. economy. This article reports that compared to previous studies, this study covers additional cost estimates for health conditions linked to rape, criminal justice processes, and productivity and property loss. This published study also uses data from the National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence survey (NISVS), which are based on self-report and likely identifies more victims than other official reports. This article reports the study's estimates that the lifetime cost of rape is $3.1 trillion. The author includes suggested messaging for increasing public awareness and educating stakeholders and policymakers about the necessity to invest in prevention, as well as the benefits of conducting cost-benefit analyses. Limitations and more details about the methods are available in the full text of the published study, "Lifetime economic burden of rape among U.S. adults" in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, which is linked to in the CVR Library.
