Violence Against Indian Women National Baseline Study

The Tribal Study of Public Safety and Public Health Issues Facing American Indian and Alaska Native Women — also referred to as the National Baseline Study (NBS) — is a study of public safety and public health of American Indian (AI) and Alaska Native (AN) women living in Indian Country and AN villages. The information collected from this study will produce a deeper understanding of the victimization of AI and AN women and of their access to and the capacity of formal and community responses and services.

This study provides a rich and comprehensive picture of AI and AN women’s experiences with violence and victimization, health and wellness, community crime, service needs, and help-seeking behaviors and outcomes, as well as their opinions about public safety.

This study was designed to:
      Document public safety and public health issues faced by AI and AN women living in Indian Country and AN villages.
      Evaluate federal, state, local and tribal governments’ responses to violence against AI and AN women.
Inform public policies and prevention strategies to decrease victimization rates among AI and AN women.
