“Among Valley residents, the rate of hospital encounters related to violence from 2018 to 2021 was below the statewide rate, but disparities exist between towns. Injuries caused by assault, including intimate partner violence, affect both men and women in the Valley. Women in Ansonia face a disproportionately high risk of hospital encounters due to assault relative to women in Connecticut.” – 2022 Valley Community Index
