The magnitude of domestic violence may be considerably greater than available data indicate given that survey data tend to involve underreporting, and statistics from service or data collection agencies are limited to reported cases. Facts & Stats Report: Domestic Violence in Asian and Pacific Islander Homes, Updated 2015 raises awareness about the experiences of Asian victims/survivors of domestic violence and, given a smaller data set, about Pacific Islanders; counters denial about the problem; emphasizes the need for socio-culturally effective prevention and intervention; and serves to guide future research and inform public policy.
