Youth Violence Measures Compendium

In 2005, The Division of Violence Prevention in the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention published this compendium of measures commonly used in evaluating efforts to prevent youth violence. This resource provides researchers, evaluators, and prevention practitioners with a set of tools to assess violence-related beliefs, behaviors, and influences, as well as to evaluate programs to prevent youth violence. It contains more than 170 measures, including common surveys and questions that measure the risk and protective factors associated with other forms of violence like dating violence, intimate partner violence, and sexual assault. The compendium also explains what goes into creating well-rounded components of comprehensive evaluations and walks you through 10 steps for conducting outcome evaluations.
