Dr. Joey Von Nessen, a research economist at the University of South Carolina Darla Moore School of Business, discussed his study which found domestic violence costs the state more than $350 million annually. South Carolina ranks eleventh in the nation in the rate of women murdered by men, with a rate of 1.68 per 100,000, according to the most recent edition of the annual Violence Policy Center study.

On this edition of the South Carolina Lede for February 22, 2022: new research on the economic impact of domestic violence on South Carolina; the University of South Carolina's Dr. Bobby Donaldson on the Palmetto State's civil rights history; a preview of this week's state legislative action; and more.
