Defining the data challenge for family, domestic and sexual violence is a tool for policy and data experts, as well as researchers and service providers with an interest in data, in the fields of family, domestic and sexual violence in Australia. It maps the context and defines the scope of inquiry around the subject matter and identifies the elements for measurement.
It defines and describes the social phenomena of family, domestic and sexual violence and puts it into a statistically measurable context by identifying key statistically measurable ‘elements’. These elements describe the types of data needed to:
- support the analysis of the current status of family, domestic and sexual violence as areas of social concern;
- support measurement of the activity and performance of the systems that provide responses to family, domestic and sexual violence; and
- support the measurement of changes over time.
This provides for a systematic and rigorous way of thinking about family, domestic and sexual violence, and promotes standards, consistency and comparability across the proposed data collections within and between jurisdictions and sectors.
