Domestic violence plummets 50%

The Chicago Sun Times reported on December 29, 2006 that domestic violence, now referred to as "Intimate Partner Violence" has decreased over 50% in the last 10 years.

Domestic violence rates fell sharply between 1993 and 2004, the Justice Department said Thursday.

The Bureau of Justice Statistics said that ''intimate partner violence'' rates fell by more than 50 percent.

The decline mirrored a decade-long trend in other violent crimes, and the department did not suggest a cause.
