The updated report is organised in two volumes: the main report (Volume 1); and an annotated bibliography of New Zealand family violence research (see: Volume 2 Annotated Bibliography). Volume 1 describes the work undertaken to update the publication, and provides a summary of a quantitative analysis undertaken of the three major forms of family violence abuse: intimate partner abuse, child abuse and neglect, and elder abuse and neglect. There is also an analysis of the New Zealand family violence literature relating to Maori and Pacific peoples. From the quantitative analysis, a number of gaps in family violence research have been identified, including: neglect (as a specific focus discrete from abuse), sibling violence, violence towards parents, pregnancy, elder abuse and neglect, same-sex partner abuse, financial exploitation, institution violence (particularly in elder care), disability, and suicide/self-harm. It is also noted that there is a general deficiency of research that recognises non-dominant culture perspectives on family violence, including research within Maori, Pacific, Asian, Migrant and Refugee communities. There has been no attempt to prioritise research areas, and it is suggested that for future research to address areas of most benefit, a strategic framework allowing research priorities to be determined is required.
