This project aims to investigate the long-term impact of intimate partner violence on women in the following domains: 1. Women's mental health and wellbeing 2. Women's ability to work 3. Women's utilisation of health services 4. Women's personal/social interactions The dependant variable that will be used for the study is the question about abuse that was asked in waves 2 and 3 in the young cohort and the partner abuse question (community composite abuse scale) waves 4-6 in the young cohort. We also aim to investigate the psychometric properties of the community composite abuse scale using Rasch analysis.
