    Abstract

    We estimate the impact of economic status on the frequency of domestic violence using several models and a large random sample. Tauchen, Witte and Long (1991) (TWL) find that both female and male income have a significant impact on the frequency of domestic abuse. We use a Zero Inflated Poisson model and a less self-selected sample of married women and find less evidence of a significant relationship between either female or male income and the frequency of abuse.
