For women who were randomly selected and interviewed for the domestic violence module and were ever married or lived with a man, DVPMSEVER (D107) indicates whether the woman ever experienced "more severe" violence from her husband/partner. The specific acts that are considered "more severe" vary across samples. See the "Comparability" tab for more information.
The complementary variable DVPLSEVER indicates a woman's experience with "less severe" violence from a husband or partner.
