Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2013, $40,000)

This project is to examine trends and characteristics of Latino Intimate Partner Homicide (IPH) in comparison to White and Black trends and characteristics using data on violent from the National Violent Death Reporting System (NVDRS). The NVDRS combines information from multiple sources including death certificates, police reports and coroner/ medical examiners that have been previously analyzed in isolation overcoming the limitations of each individual data source. Multiple imputation will be used to determine the rate, characteristics, risk-factors, and trends of Latino IPH compared to non-Latino White and non-Latino Black IPH from 2005-2010. Analyses will include racial/ethnic group specific rates, characteristics of IPH among the racial/ethnic groups, and identify racial/ethnic group-specific risk factors (e.g., gender, age, marital status, pregnancy, education, employment, immigrant status, alcohol use, drug use, suspect sex, suspect age, suspect race, suspect ethnicity, history of abuse, number of wounds, weapon use, location of injury, and homicide-suicide). ca/ncf
