Abstract [en]

Objectives We aimed to assess intimate partner violence

(IPV) among men and women from six cities in six European

countries.

Methods Four IPV types were measured in a populationbased

multicentre study of adults (18–64 years;

n = 3,496). Sex- and city-differences in past year prevalence

were examined considering victims, perpetrators or

both and considering violent acts’ severity and repetition.

Results Male victimization of psychological aggression

ranged from 48.8 % (Porto) to 71.8 % (Athens) and female

victimization from 46.4 % (Budapest) to 70.5 % (Athens).

Male and female victimization of sexual coercion ranged

from 5.4 and 8.9 %, respectively, in Budapest to 27.1 and

25.3 % in Stuttgart. Male and female victims of physical

assault ranged from 9.7 and 8.5 %, respectively, in Porto,

to 31.2 and 23.1 % in Athens. Male victims of injury were

2.7 % in O¨ stersund and 6.3 % in London and female victims

were 1.4 % in O¨ stersund and 8.5 % in Stuttgart. IPV

differed significantly across cities (p\0.05). Men and

women predominantly experienced IPV as both victims

and perpetrators with few significant sex-differences within

cities.

Conclusions Results support the need to consider men

and women as both potential victims and perpetrators when

approaching IPV.
