These data reflect the number of bed-nights that domestic violence programs provided to adult and child victims of domestic violence. “Bed-nights” means the number of beds in use multiplied by the number of nights used. For example, a program with 10 beds that had 9 in use each night over the course of a week provided 63 bed-nights that week.

Bedford City was reincorporated into Bedford County in 2013. Bedford City will show as NA or blank from 2014 on and that data will now be captured under Bedford County.
