La violence envers les conjointes dans les couples québécois, 1998

The Enquête sur la violence envers les conjointes dans les couples québécois (survey on violence against female spouses in Québec couples) was conducted in 1998 within the scope of the Enquête sociale et de santé. This survey, whose main objective was to establish the annual rates of the prevalence of violent behaviour toward female spouses in Québec and to measure the most immediate consequences on the health of women and their recourse to formal and informal services, is part of an exploratory extension survey done by Santé Québec in 1992-1993. It also aims at documenting the links between violent behaviour and a number of individual, family and social variables contained in the 1998 Enquête sociale et de santé.
