POTENTIAL FACTORS RELATING TO ‘CONTEXT’

Given that many of the components of the Context element of the Framework are not ideally suited to statistical measurement, a number of sources of information may be consulted to build an understanding of environmental and individual factors. Factors that may inform this element of the Framework will likely cover a wide range of social domains, and may not necessarily be directly related to family and domestic violence, for example:

  • General social environment, attitudes and norms
  • Geographical location
  • Social capital
  • Historical and cultural context
  • Socioeconomic status
  • Substance use
  • Mental illness
  • Family composition.


Potential units for analysis

In exploring contextual factors that can influence the life experiences of those effected by FDV and the attitudes held within the community, the contextual factors above may be considered for the following subpopulations of interest:
  • Women
  • Men
  • Children and youth
  • Elderly people
  • People with disabilities
  • Indigenous peoples
  • Ethnic and religious groups.
