• Pre FY06 data reflects substantiated spouse abuse incidents only. Per DoD mandate commencing 2nd quarter FY06, data includes intimate partners.
• Therefore, domestic abuse victims include current or former spouses, those who share a child in common, current or former intimate partners of the opposite sex who share or have shared
common domicile. Adult victims of domestic abuse may choose “restricted reporting” whereby investigation of the report of domestic violence is not initiated but medical and support
services are offered.
• FY11 Restricted report data is reported quarterly.
* Live data- subject to change
**Data is extracted from the Central Registry (live data), as of 1 September 2011.
