Estimating costs of marital violence in the Arab region: Operational Model

January 2017

This study presents an economic model to estimate the cost of marital violence in the Arab region. This economic model measures the costs of intimate partner violence by estimating household costs associated with violence, community level costs of service provision, and costs related to women’s loss of productivity in the labour market.

A useful first approximation is the monetary costs incurred by women, such as out-of-pocket expenditure to mitigate the consequences of violence.
