WEST VIRGINIA QUALITY OF LIFE STUDY
The Research Center on Violence at West Virginia University has collaborated with the Criminal Justice Statistical Analysis Center (CJSAC) within the Office of Research and Strategic Planning at the at the Division of Justice and Community Services to launch West Virginia’s first victimization study.
The three-year study - funded by a $448,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Justice - came as the result of emerging evidence that sexual assaults, domestic violence and other crimes go unreported in West Virginia on account of its rural cultural, limited service options, high percentage of citizens with disabilities and an elderly population that surpasses the national average.
