Abstract

This article explores the extent to which disabled individuals experience interpersonal violence due to victimization. Data on people injured by violence were collated directly from the accident and emergency units in hospitals. High frequency daily data were obtained from computerized records of 26 major accident and emergency departments in London for each day throughout the year of 2016. The final sample consisted of 408,000 observations. A fundamental distinction of our research lies in applying the Generalized Method of Moments system panel estimator to our sample. This makes our empirical estimates robust to endogeneity and joint determination unlike previous empirical research in this area. Data analysis provides strong evidence confirming the victimization of people with disabilities and the necessity to focus on disability equality in violence prevention work.
