Reseña: This report, supported by the National Institute of Justice and the Bureau of Justice Statistics, represents an important first step in analyzing what needs to bedone to ensure reliable estimates of the extent and nature of violent crimes committed against women. The study found that the Federal Government and the majority of States currently are collecting some statistics annually on thesecrimes: 35 States collect data on domestic violence, 30 gather statistics on sexual violence.
