Spousal Abuse May Be Worse In Small Towns

The common fear of crime in big cities may be misplaced, at least with some categories of crime.

Kathryn DuBois, Assistant Professor of Criminology at Washington State University-Vancouver, focused on women suffering abuse from past or present spouses and partners.

The analysis of more than two decades of data show the problem is greatest in small towns, more than in cities or suburbs.

Dr. DuBois explains the findings, and what we might do with the information.
