The establishment of a flexible evidence base requires data to be collected in a consistent way that enables its transformation into statistical information. Therefore it is essential that information is collected in a systematic and standard way, across organisations and jurisdictions.

The forthcoming National Data Collection and Reporting Framework will form the basis for a shared understanding of family, domestic and sexual violence and be one of the tools that will empower organisations to improve their data collection practices. A data collection framework is neither a national statistical collection nor a national dataset. Rather it is a tool that will assist and guide organisations when implementing new systems or considering measurement issues.

In the short term, the ABS has committed to developing a collection framework that can be used for the creation of new information collection activities as well as the alignment of existing collections. A shift in the components of the current information environment may require intellectual effort, IT system improvements and/or behavioural change at the operational level, all of which would incur a cost to organisations. Funding arrangements for the long term development of statistical assets that support a robust family, domestic and sexual violence evidence base will require negotiation and agreement by Australian governments.
