What is the composition of the victims of the domestic violence. Is is higher in certain communities and lower in others?
In the Chinese community we hear of infancide of baby girls indicating women’s low stature in the community, and does that translate into the adult Domestic violence?
In the Muslim community women are covered head to foot so we are less likely to see evidence of the abuse?
What economic strata do we see the most violence? Is violence more prevelent in poorer areas or richer? Is violence more prevelent in higher education households?
Do men also have the problems of Domestic violence?
