MEASURING IMPACTS AND OUTCOMES

Potential units for analysis
Incidents of family, domestic and sexual violence involve direct and indirect costs to the individuals involved. These costs can spread to their families, friends, local communities and ultimately to wider society. Information about the various outcomes and impacts may be reflected through the following counting units:

  • people: victims/perpetrators of family, domestic and sexual violence;
  • incidents of family, domestic and sexual violence; and
  • transactions: services provided in response to impacts of family, domestic and sexual violence.
Questions to support research and policy priorities
  • What are the impacts and outcomes of family, domestic and sexual violence for victims? How do these vary for different population groups?
  • Are there impacts on victims of violence resulting from their interactions with other legal processes, e.g. relocation orders in instances of family and domestic violence?
  • Do rates of accessing services or seeking criminal justice protection vary across different population groups? If so, why?
  • What are the impacts and outcomes of family, domestic or sexual violence for perpetrators, both those within the civil or criminal justice system and those who do not come into contact with the system?
  • What are the outcomes for perpetrators who attend behavioural change programs?
  • Does arrest reduce the likelihood of recidivism, with current or future partners?
  • What are the impacts and outcomes for perpetrators of family, domestic or sexual violence with a criminal conviction?
  • What are the impacts and outcomes of family, domestic and sexual violence for children and other witnesses to violence?
  • What are the impacts and outcomes of family, domestic and sexual violence for family, friends and the community?
  • Who are the indirect victims?
  • What are the social costs of family, domestic and sexual violence?
  • What are the economic costs for responding to family, domestic and sexual violence through the health, welfare and civil or criminal justice system?
  • What are the impacts of the changed economic contribution made by individuals affected by family, domestic or sexual violence?
