Potential units for analysis
In conducting research and evaluation, and developing and delivering programs, information about the following units of analysis may be useful:

  • people – victims and perpetrators (including re-entry to the criminal justice system);
  • behaviours - in relation to incidents of family, domestic and sexual violence; and
  • programs:
    • participants – attitudes/satisfaction;
    • type of program;
    • type of activity;
    • cost of the program; and
    • outcomes.
Questions to support research and policy priorities
  • What are the determinants of family, domestic and sexual violence?
  • How can family, domestic and sexual violence be prevented?
  • How can the risk (prevalence and incidence) of family, domestic and sexual violence be reduced?
  • Where should attempts be made to intervene to reduce the risk of family, domestic and sexual violence?
  • How can the formation of individual and community attitudes be influenced?
  • What are the perceptions held in the community now and how can these existing attitudes be changed?
  • How can unacceptable behaviours be changed?
  • How can behaviours in specific population groups or settings be influenced?
  • Which formal interventions from the health, welfare or justice systems reduce the occurrence of family, domestic and sexual violence incidents?
  • Which supportive interventions for victims are most effective in assisting recovery?
  • What is the effectiveness of education programs aimed at reducing family, domestic and sexual violence and changing community attitudes generally?
  • How effective are specific prevention and intervention programs that are available to victims and perpetrators, in terms of cost, utilisation and outcome?
  • What effects does the presence of or lacks of family and community support have on engagement with programs, and successful intervention?
