Warning: these figures indicate the number of cases found in the data file. They cannot be interpreted as summary statistics of the population of interest.
For women who were randomly selected and interviewed for the domestic violence module, DVOMABOTH indicates whether they had been physically hurt by their mother or stepmother since age 15.
Some samples separate "mother" and "step-mother" responses in this series. For a variable that includes only "mother" responses for this series, see DVOMA (D115B). For a variable that only includes "step-mother" responses for this series, see DVOMASTEP (D115M).
