The ONS said 1.2 million women and 800,000 men suffered domestic abuse in England and Wales in the last year, equal to 7% of women and 5% of men.
Females aged 16-19 or 20-24 were more likely to be victims of domestic abuse, stalking and sexual assault, the survey said.
Elsewhere, the ONS said women who were separated had the highest risk of domestic abuse in the last year - one in five - compared with other groups by marital status.
The pattern was slightly different for sexual assault, the ONS said, with single women and separated women being more likely to be a victim than those who were married.
Women and men with a long-term illness or disability were more likely to be victims of domestic abuse in the last year when compared with those without. Women with a degree or diploma were less likely than women with no qualifications or other qualifications to be a victim of domestic abuse in the last year.
