DATE OF EVENT
The ‘Date of Event’ data item records information about the day, month and year that the family, domestic and sexual violence was experienced/occurred. This could be the day of the transaction or many years before and may include a start and end date if the violence occurred over an extended period time.
BENEFITS OF COLLECTING THIS INFORMATION:
This information can assist in improving understanding about support seeking behaviours, prevalence and demand for services.
Where a person has experienced violence on multiple occasions, the date of the event that prompted the person to seek assistance or contact an organisation should be recorded.
RELATED DATA COLLECTION STANDARDS:
There is no specific data standard for this item; however the ‘Service Contact Date’ used in METeOR could be used as a proxy.
