AbstractThis research study, entitled Domestic Violence: A Profile of the Victim in Pima County, took 1990 information from the Pima County Attorney's Office Adult Diversion Program, and compiled a profile of the domestic violence victim in Pima County. Data was derived from police reports and questionnaires answered by the participants which were contained in files at the Pima County Attorney's Office. It was shown that the subjects displayed a number of similar specific characteristics. They were between the ages of 25-44, had 0-3 children, were Caucasian or Hispanic, had the gross yearly income between 0-20,000 dollars. It was also shown that the majority of the domestic violence came from a spouse or an unmarried partner, that the incidents involved alcohol and that the subjects suffered minor injuries which required little or no medical treatment.
