Current levels of risk of family, domestic and sexual violence can be estimated through analysis of data on past levels or past exposure. The key measures that are required to estimate current levels of risk are outlined below. This information is required in terms of a defined population, over a defined time period and from a certain age. Key measures required for a defined population, per defined time period, since defined age, are as follows.

  • Number of people who have experienced family, domestic or sexual violence
  • Prevalence rates for victimisation
  • Number of people who have perpetrated family, domestic and sexual violence offences
  • Prevalence rates for offending
  • Number of incidents
  • Incidence rates for victimisation/perpetration
  • Relationship between victims and perpetrators (i.e. partners, child/parent, siblings, strangers)
  • Prevalence rates for people with different characteristics who may have been exposed to some mediating effects.
