Contents >> Introduction


The purpose of this directory is to provide researchers, policy analysts and practitioners with a single place to access information about Australian and State and Territory Government sources of publicly available statistical information related to FDV. The information provided can be used by readers to:

  • better understand the purpose, collection methods and outputs available from each data source;
  • inform an assessment of whether data from a particular source are likely to meet their information needs; and if so,
  • access published data sources or contact data custodians to request data, where available, via the contact details and hyperlinks included.

FDV is a community-wide problem with involvement from all levels of government across the health, welfare, family and community services and crime and justice sectors. The multi-disciplinary nature of FDV service provision responses and information collection/research has meant that much of the data relevant to this field has remained invisible, under-utilised and scattered across sectors, jurisdictions and levels of government. This directory is a coordinated, national metadata repository and aims to improve awareness, and ultimately the use, of FDV-related data, collected by or on behalf of Australian governments.

This section contains the following subsection :
      Levels of government
      Conceptual Framework for Family and Domestic Violence
      Types of data sources
