dc.description.abstract This report details patterns of intimate partner violence (IPV) victimization and offending by using the 2014 and 2015 Michigan Incident Crime Reports (MICR). Defining intimate partner violence as physical, sexual, or psychological harm committed by current or former intimate partners or spouses, this report examines characteristics of victims, offenders, their relationships, and offense characteristics. Key results can be summarized as follows: Between 2014 and 2015 there were 85,636 IPV offenses reported by Michigan law enforcement agencies, affecting 87,904 victims. The frequency of IPV offenses was relatively stable between 2014 and 2015, with the exception of intimidation offenses, which increased by 9% from 2014 to 2015. Across all IPV incidents, current dating relationships between victims and offenders were the most prevalent (45%), followed by current spouses (22%), and former dating relationships (17%). Former relationships were more prevalent among intimidation offenses. The most common structure for an IPV incident was a lone female victim and a lone male offender. Victims and offenders tended to be between 25-34 years old, with the exception of sexual IPV victims, who were most commonly under 18 years old. African American females experienced the highest IPV victimization rates, at a rate of just under 200 per 10,000. The next highest victimization rate was for white females, at just under 50 per 10,000. About 40% of IPV offenses resulted in an arrest, with physical IPV offenses having the highest likelihood of arrest, and intimidation offenses the lowest. Offenses between spouses were the most likely to result in an arrest, with offenses among dating relationships and former relationships significantly less likely to result in an arrest. IPV victimizations were more common in jurisdictions with higher levels of socioeconomic deprivation and income inequality, sexual IPV victimizations were more common in rural areas.
