Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: [Canberra, ACT] : Australian Bureau of Statistics, 2013Description: electronic document (79 p.); 3.16 MB.Subject(s): DOMESTIC VIOLENCE | DATA COLLECTION | INTIMATE PARTNER VIOLENCE | AUSTRALIA | FAMILY VIOLENCE | SEXUAL VIOLENCEOnline resources: Click here to access online | Access the website Summary: It is expected that this publication will contribute to policy development and service delivery planning by facilitating a common language that accurately and reliably measures statistics in this field. The multi-dimensional nature of family, domestic and sexual violence, and the development of legal and service responses to the problem over time, have led to a variety of definitions and a lack of comprehensive quality data to support effective evidence-based policy, services and responses for victims and perpetrators. The short to medium-term aim is to assist in the determination of the key information priorities and understand the current data environment. This involves undertaking environmental and data gap analysis exercises to more effectively understand where the data needs are, and determine a course of action to address these needs. A long-term aim of the National Plan is to create nationally consistent data definitions and collection methods to provide a fit-for-purpose, rich and flexible evidence base to meet current and future needs across the field. These needs may relate to topics ranging from primary prevention, understanding prevalence and incidence, to responses and service provision. (from the overview)
