Study suggests increase in domestic violence related to econonic downturn

A recent study was done on the number of domestic violence cases in the U.S. and the correlation between these and the current slow economic state.

According to the study, nearly 700 law enforcement agencies were surveyed and of these, 56 percent stated that they have noticed an increase in domestic violence calls as a result of a ‘sluggish economy.’

In the state of New Jersey, police officials have seen a 10 percent increase in the number of domestic violence calls since 2010. Police officials have stated that the increased stress in a home because of unemployment and financial issues may be a reason that domestic violence rises in these situations.
