This study examines the relationship between the government aid and intimate partner violence. Agnew's General Strain Theory (GST) is used to explain the relationship between poverty and intimate partner violence. Using the individual level data of 8,000 women, this study examines whether the government aid moderates the effect of living in poverty on intimate partner violence. Using the data from the survey questions, a logistic regression analysis is conducted. Results reveal that the relationship between living in poverty and likelihood of intimate partner violence was supported. However, this study does not support the relationship between government aid and intimate partner violence. Thus, further research needed with more accurate data and different method.
