Battered women are a vulnerable population in the United States.
Using a case study report, resource availability and relative risk are identified and examined as critical components that influence morbidity and mortality in battered women.
The case study supports the conceptualization that battered women have few societal and environmental resources, which results in a high number of risk factors.
Decreased health status, especially morbidity and premature mortality, are associated with gender, sociocultural, and economic factors which define battered women as a vulnerable population group.
