Abstract:

A longitudinal design was used to compare rates of severe intimate partner violence SIPV perpetration during the year prior to enlistment and the second year of service in a sample of 542 female and 421 male Navy personnel. Overall, 11 reported perpetration of SIPV during the year prior to service. Premilitary perpetration rates of SIPV were significantly higher for women 20 than for men 4. Following 2 years of service, the overall percentage reporting past-year perpetration of SIPV increased slightly 14 vs. a premilitary rate of 11. The pattern of change in rates of SIPV perpetration varied for men and women. Across time, SIPV perpetration increased among men from 4 to 16 and decreased among women from 20 to 12. Respondents who were female, younger, and minority reported higher rates of premilitary SIPV perpetration. None of the demographic factors were associated with reports of SIPV perpetration during the second year.
