Domestic Violence During COVID-19: Evidence from a Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis [open pdf - 0B]
From the Overview: "Since the first quarter of 2020, researchers have moved rapidly to examine the impact of the coronavirus and policies designed to stop the spread of the virus on a wide array of outcomes. These include criminal activity (Rosenfeld & Lopez, 2020) [hyperlink], substance use and abuse (Engel et al., 2020) [hyperlink], and educational (Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, 2020) [hyperlink] and employment (Fana et al., 2020) [hyperlink] outcomes, among others. In this report, we contribute to the growing body of research by moving beyond narrative reviews of domestic violence trends (e.g., Petermen & O'Donnell, 2020) to conduct a systematic review and meta-analysis of the effect of COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019]-related restrictions on reported incidents of domestic violence."
