HOW CURRENT DATA SUPPORT IDENTIFIED INFORMATION UNITS
At present the data required to support a flexible evidence base for family, domestic and sexual violence are not available. Information does exist but is not currently an adequate measure of the extent of violence against women and their children. It is acknowledged that the consequence of a focus on administrative data in this paper is the improvement of reported events of family, domestic and sexual violence only. Surveys collect information about unrecorded/unreported events and surveys such as the PSS and NCAS are currently in place to measure these factors.
The analysis undertaken identified two types of data gaps - the first was where information is not collected at the national level, and the second was where information currently collected is not sufficient to support family, domestic and sexual violence information. Regardless of the type of data gap, the key to strengthening the current family, domestic and sexual violence evidence base is to transform the data collected in current administrative systems.
