DEMOGRAPHICS OF THOSE WHO HAVE EXPERIENCED VIOLENCE
In addition to the information for men and women aged 18 years and over about their experience of violence, the 2012 PSS also collected a range of information about their demographics. This included age, language, marital status, education, country of birth, State or Territory of residence. This information was also collected about a person's current partner. Three characteristics have been assessed and presented in this chapter from the 2012 PSS:

Men's experience of violence in the 12 months prior to the survey differed depending on their age group:
There was no statistically significant difference in the prevalence of violence for men in the other age groups compared to the prevalence rate for all men (refer Table 7).
Women's experience of violence in the 12 months prior to the survey also differed depending on their age group:
There was no statistically significant difference in the prevalence of violence for women in the other age groups compared to the prevalence rate for all women (refer Table 7).

These other data are available, on a fee for service basis, as customised tables through the ABS Information Consultancy or on the Confidentialised Unit Record File which is expected to be released in March 2014.
