Domestic violence happens everywhere and can happen to anyone.
In a recent survey conducted by Interval House, we found that half of Greater Toronto residents believe domestic violence is more likely to occur in low-income areas. But we know that domestic violence doesn’t discriminate.
We took police data from 2014 to 2015 and mapped domestic violence-related charges across the city of Toronto. Each dot represents 20 charges related to domestic violence against women between 2014 and 2015.
It’s clear: Domestic violence knows no boundaries.
