The study undertook the development and validation of a risk assessment tool for the evaluation of risk of intimate partner violence (IPV) among the Chinese population. A total of 2,225 men from a representative Chinese population in Hong Kong were assessed with their experience of IPV perpetration in the year preceding the interview. With the use of the split-half validation procedure, six factors that were associated with IPV perpetration were selected. The area under the receiver operating characteristic curve (AUC) was 0.76. The Chinese Risk Assessment Tool for Perpetrators (CRAT-P) is a brief and easy to use assessment tool for evaluating IPV risk in the Chinese population.
