    The official statistics will under-report the male deaths from abuse. They may (but I have some doubts) capture all of the direct homicides, and according to the poster who provided numbers, this is around a 1:2 ratio of male to female *direct* victims. It however largely misses female perpetrated conspiracy to murder - either using a male relative, strangers, new boyfriend etc (which if detected tends to be recorded as male on male, with a female accomplice of minor note) - or use of armed agencies to kidnap or kill based on at least partially false grounds.

    It also doesn't attempt to estimate or capture details of the elevated male suicide rates during and after abuse - some of which should be regarded as a direct consequence of the abuse and the absence of understanding/support/help/compassion shown to these victims in a legal system which due to feminist lobbying and much lying in the collection and reporting of statistics has made male victims more or less invisible. (Not the mention to absolute paucity of support for men, particularly fathers who want to escape abusive wives and mothers, and to protect their children from the same - 2000+ shelters in the US accept women... 2 (at the last count I am aware of) accept men or boys over 14.

    A woman’s life is safer with someone she doesn’t know than with a man she knows. 

    According to the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence (NRCDV), intimate partner homicides make up approximately 10% of all US murders and of those, women comprise approximately 70% of those killed. In other words, one out of every 10 people murdered is by an intimate partner, and seven of those ten murdered are women. Research tells us that women are far more likely to be killed by an intimate acquaintance or spouse than by a stranger.

    The question isn’t very precise in what it’s asking.

     1 in 3 female murder victims and 1 in 20 male murder victims are killed by intimate partners.

    This tells you the gender of the victim. The gender of the perpetrator isn’t so clear.  There may well be under-counting in all DV crimes. Witnesses are intimidated, family protect guilty parties.
