What is the 2021 Alaska Dashboard
The 2021 Alaska Dashboard is a broad overview of population indicators on key issues related to domestic violence and sexual assault in Alaska. The dashboard looks at reported incidents, service utilization, protective factors, offender accountability and survey results.
This is the dashboard’s eighth year of publication. The Council uses dashboard indicators to monitor trends, strengthen policy and practices to enhance intervention efforts, implement prevention strategies and, when necessary, make changes/revise program development to adopt practices better suited to ending domestic violence and sexual assault in Alaska.
We encourage you to go beyond the numbers by reading through the indicator definitions to better understand what is being reviewed. The trend analysis column is not meant to be a comment on the positive or negative rate of domestic violence and sexual assault in Alaska, rather it is meant to comment on whether the trend is increasing or decreasing.
We all need to think about how we can change these numbers, whether we are policy makers or concerned citizens. We encourage you to discuss what you see with your family, neighbors, friends, co-workers. How can you make a difference?
Each of the numbers in the dashboard represents a life affected by these crimes. The level of domestic violence, sexual assault and sexual abuse of minors in our state remains unacceptably high—any amount of domestic violence or sexual assault is too much.
We hope you will join us in our efforts to increase victim safety and hold offenders accountable for their actions. Call your local victim service provider to learn about your community's efforts to end domestic violence and to find ways to get involved.
