Notes

  • 1.  

    The victim-offender relationship was not known in 39 percent of all homicides.

  • 2.  

    Although lesbian couples are technically included in this definition, there has been very little research on violence in lesbian (or male gay) relationships, and it is not covered separately in this report.
