The National Centre for Crime and Justice Statistics is undertaking a project to produce Sexual Assault in Australia: A Statistical Overview. This follows from the Sexual Assault Information Development Framework (IDF) (cat. no. 4518.0), released in August 2003, which concluded that there is a need to bring together currently available information to provide a broad, statistical overview of the whole field of sexual assault. Drawing on selected ABS and non-ABS data sources, the overview will present information about the key elements of the conceptual framework contained in the IDF; context, risk, incidents, responses, impacts and prevention. The statistical overview is scheduled for release in mid-2004. For further information contact Lyn Tucker on (03) 9615 7883, email: lyn.tucker@abs.gov.au.
