Sexual assault information paper: ABS efforts to close gap in data

A comprehensive examination of information needs and currently available data on sexual assault was released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) today.

The publication, Information Paper: Sexual Assault Information Development Framework (cat. no. 4518.0), presents a conceptual framework for sexual assault, for research and analysis of data in this area of community concern.

Information about a number of currently available sexual assault data sources are also brought together in this paper. Some of these sources are existing ABS collections and approximately 60 non-ABS sources are included.

The publication aims to help users of statistics improve their understanding of the data and related issues in the area of sexual assault.

The information development framework provides a benchmark from which to move forward. It will be used as a tool for the development and management of information needed for research, policy development and service delivery in relation to sexual assault. A number of conclusions about addressing priority information development needs are included in the publication.

The development of this information development framework has been funded by the Office of the Status of Women as part of the 'National Initiative to Combat Sexual Assault'.

Further information is in Information Paper: Sexual Assault Information Development Framework (cat. no. 4518.0).
