Impact of Stalking On Victims

The impact on victims of stalking can be:

  • 46% of stalking victims fear not knowing what will happen next.
  • 29% of stalking victims fear the stalking will never stop.
  • 1 in 8 employed stalking victims lose time from work as a result of their victimization and more than half lose 5 days of work or more.
  • 1 in 7 stalking victims move as a result of their victimization [Baum]
  • The prevalence of anxiety, insomnia, social dysfunction, and severe depression is much higher among stalking victims then the general population, especially if the stalking involves being followed or having one’s personal property destroyed. [Eric Blauuw]
