Title: Declines of spousal homicide in Canada linked to trends in education, employment and divorce rates
Author: Dawson, M.; Pottie Bunge, V.; Balde, T.; Institute for Community Engaged Scholarship
Abstract: In Canada, a smaller male-female employment gap was tied to fewer female spousal homicides, while higher rates of male education were associated with fewer male spousal homicides. For both males and females, a lower divorce rate was linked to a lower spousal homicide rate.
