Discussion Assignment 

Assignment 2: Prevalence Statistics and Reporting Requirements

  • Browse state-run Web sites to collect information about statistical estimates on family violence that is reported or that goes unreported.
  • Choose a specific area of family violence and hypothesize why there is such a variance between actual reported and unreported incidents.
  • Analyze the reporting requirements to verify if they are too lenient or too strict.
  • How might reporting rates be increased?

Write your initial response to each part in 3–4 paragraphs. Apply APA standards to citation of sources.

In responding to your peers, compare and contrast the information for the state you picked to ones selected by your peers and provide insight into the reasons for the similarities and differences observed.

By Saturday, September 6, 2014, submit your response to the appropriate Discussion Area. Use the same Discussion Area to comment on your classmates’ submissions and continue the discussion until Wednesday, September 10, 2014.
