Domestic Violence Report - More Than 700,000 Men Were Reportedly Victims

More than 700,000 men were victims of domestic abuse in the last year, shocking new figures reveal. Men make up more than a third of the 1.9million adults in England and Wales who say they were attacked or abused by spouses or family members in the past year. 

The new Office of National Statistics (ONS) report found that, overall, 1.1 million domestic abuse-related incidents were reported to police by men and women in the year ending March 2017.

The number of complaints to police is much lower than the 1.9million recorded in a larger-scale crime survey, which included many people who did not report their abuse to authorities.

The figures are so high partly because the report defines domestic abuse as 'any incident of controlling, coercive, threatening behaviour, violence or abuse' rather than specific attacks.

Despite the number of male victims falling in the last five years, the statistics show male victims now make up a higher percentage of overall victims than in recent years.

The report comprises figures taken from the police, the Government and victim support groups, as well as large-scale crime surveys.
