        Burden of Sexual Violence in Wisconsin Report (2010)

        • Sexual violence is a significant public health problem impacting nearly a million people in Wisconsin. It is perhaps the most personal and invasive expression of violence that one person (or a group) can perpetrate upon another individual. Victims of sexual assault come from every walk of life, and this epidemic knows no boundaries; sexual violence affects us all. But what is the real burden of sexual violence on the communities in Wisconsin?
        • The Burden of Sexual Violence in Wisconsin Report (2010) compiles data from a variety of sources to help us articulate the impact sexual violence has at a state level, as well as in each of the 72 counties. This report seeks to heighten awareness and provide critical information to communities so they can successfully initiate and support efforts to prevent sexual violence. The following data is included in the report: prevalence; reports to advocacy, medical (state-level only) and law enforcement; and convictions.

         

        Osnium

        The Osnium WS database is used throughout Wisconsin to track statistical data, which allows advocates to set goals, plan progress, and report on outcomes in prevention work.
