Bloomberg news interviews Schneider about FFCWS work

Wednesday, Apr 6, 2016

Karen Weise of Bloomberg recently interviewed Daniel Schneider about his paper in Demography, written with co-authors Kristen Harknett and Sara McLanahan, entitled "Intimate Partner Violence in the Great Recession."

Schneider spoke about the study's findings regarding the effects of unemployment and hardship on IPV as well as the effect of the "climate of uncertainty" caused by the Recession.

"When the unemployment rate worsens by 50 percent over the prior 12 months, the prevalence of abuse rises from 10 percent to 12 percent; when the unemployment rate doubles within a year, abuse rises to 14 percent."
