IMPACTS/OUTCOMES

This element includes the short, medium and long-term impacts and outcomes for victims, for perpetrators, for their children, for other family and friends, and for the community. Data sources may have information about a wide range of areas of a person's well-being that can be affected by FDV: population, family and community, physical and mental health, education, employment, economic resources, housing, crime and justice, and culture and leisure. Other aspects of this element are changes in community perception, attitudes and behaviours, breakdown in community supports and the direct and indirect costs of FDV to the community. Direct costs are the costs of providing system responses, funding community prevention and education programs, and the aggregated cost to individuals of accessing these services. Indirect costs are costs to businesses and the economy of lost time and reduced productivity and the opportunity cost of using resources to provide services in response to FDV.

Short and medium-term effects of FDV are described as impacts, and medium to long-term effects, particularly after interventions by systems responding to FDV, are described as outcomes.
