The system of social statistics presented here focuses on six elements as central organising principles. Each of these elements represents a specific area in which information is required:

  1. Context,
  2. Risk,
  3. Incident/Experience,
  4. Responses,
  5. Impacts and Outcomes, and
  6. Programs, Research and Evaluation.
This publication delineates important concepts, and organises them into a logical structure that shows the key relationships, processes and flows that exist between the elements. It is comprehensive and flexible to allow for change, as well as being cognisant of other frameworks, classifications and standards where relevant.

The elements above break down each concept into component parts, and consider the appropriate unit of analysis for statistical measurement, such as victims, perpetrators, incidents, or the characteristics of incidents. Breaking down the data needs within each element allows for comparability over time, enabling the identification of change and recognition of trends.
