Revised directory of family and domestic violence statistics

The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) today released the updated Directory of Family and Domestic Violence Statistics, aimed at improving the evidence base for family, domestic and sexual violence.

The 2013 directory provides a detailed analysis of national and state and territory based data collections, encompassing both survey and administrative systems data.

Brad Petry from the ABS said the publication supports endeavours by Australian agencies to readily identify the scope and data gaps for the statistical reporting of family and domestic violence.

"The updated directory assists in the identification of data collections which have the potential to inform policy making and program evaluation."

"It supports current initiatives to establish a clear direction in the recording and reporting of family and domestic Violence," Mr Petry said.

The directory is part of a broader project being conducted by the ABS in partnership with the National Centre for Excellence to Reduce Violence against Women and their Children as part of the Commonwealth's national plan.

A copy of this publication is available for free download from the ABS website (
