The study breaks down intimate partner and non-partner violence revealing violence for both lifetime and within the last 12 months. Furthermore, the study also gathers and reveals the data for the different forms of violence; physical, sexual, economic and emotional violence, and controlling behaviours.
The survey, interviewed more than 7,000 women – uncovering extremely high rates of intimate partner and non-partner violence against women across Mongolia.
Key findings:
Among ever-partnered women, 57.9% have experienced one or more of the following types of violence in their lifetime: physical, sexual, emotional and economic violence, and controlling behaviours; and 31.2% have experienced physical and/or sexual violence in their lifetime;
Life-time rates of any forms of partner violence are highest in Khenti, Darkhan-Uul, Umnugobi, Ulaanbaatar, and Govisumer, while life time rates of physical and or sexual partner violence are highest in Darkhan-Uul, Umnugobi, Gobisumber, Bulgan and Khovd;
The prevalence rates of violence are not necessarily highest in Ulaanbaatar, but mainly due to the large population, the number of victims is by far the highest in Ulaanbaatar;
