    If anyone's wondering where

    • The economic cost of partner violence against Canadian women is valued at $4.8 billion annually.

    comes from, it's from here

    An Estimation of the Economic Impactof Spousal Violence in Canada, 2009
    by Department of Justice Canada
    -- https://www.justice.gc.ca/eng/rp-pr/...2_7/rr12_7.pdf

    And if you scroll down to page 80 you'll find
    • 76% of the costs are "Intangible Costs". The bulk of Intangible Costs are made up of the 'value of pain and suffering', calculated as the product of the number of people reporting sexual violence in the GSS (which is overestimated) by jury award information (which would be the most serious cases, rather than the people reporting sexual violence in the GSS). The remainder is $7.55 million for each life lost (regardless of what that person might earn in their remaining years).
    • $2.58 billion are due to Violence Against Males (funny that one isn't mentioned at all at we.org)
    • Third Party Costs include 'loss of affection' by family members


    Reminds me a lot of the Ted Miller 1991 study $6.6 billion due to firearms injury and death in Canada, where the bulk was intangible costs.

    Yeah that's what I thought. And it includes a ton of gang banger shootings
