*Survey Question:
65a. Since you had your new baby, did husband or partner physically abuse you?
Physical abuse means pushing, hitting, slapping, kicking, or any other way of physically hurting someone.

Percents based on fewer than 50 total respondents may not be reliable.
Interpret these percentages with caution. C.I. = confidence interval.
