Nutshell: I need a reputable, authoritative source of data about how many times the average victim of abuse/domestic violence/intimate partner violence returns to the relationship.

I am looking for a source for the statistic that abuse victims return to their abusers x times on average before the relationship terminates. I hear variations on this all the time and assumed it would be easy to find a reputable source, but I've spent a lot of time scouring the CDC and BJS and various similar websites without finding it. I just keep finding statistics on prevalence. Can you help?
