dc.description.abstract Domestic violence can be considered a silent social pandemic that is evident in almost all societies across the globe. It is a silent social pandemic since it largely remains invisible as fewer victims come out to talk about the violence they have been subjected to in their homes where they are expected to be safer than anywhere else. In most cases, women and children are the prime victims of domestic violence. However, there are also cases where men have been victimised in home-related violence. Domestic violence has been a very common feature in all known human societies, and in some cultures, women have been routinely subjected to domestic violence as a way of subjugating them to the male authorities in their lives. In this study, detection of trends is a challenge for the survey data, where observed increases may or may not be statistically important. This is a symbol of being within the sampling variability of data. The researcher suggests two approaches to this study: to liken two closest years or to adopt a methodology that studies a longer trend. The research design was adopted from the Kenya Demographic and Health Survey (DHS) study that was done from Kenya at large. DHS research is a projection and represents the findings from the whole of Kenya. It was mixed research using both qualitative and quantitative formats. Such information is normally considered for further action by the government and its stakeholders. The data collection tools used were the questionnaire, Interview schedule, and observation guide. en_US
