LOCATION OF EVENT
The ‘Location of Event’ data item is designed to capture the physical location (for example home, footpath or park) of an event of family, domestic and sexual violence. This information is separate to geographic information such as address.
BENEFITS OF COLLECTING THIS INFORMATION:
This information can assist in identifying the prevalence of family, domestic and sexual violence events occurring in particular types of locations and can be used to improve programs and service delivery.
The person may be asked to nominate the location category that best describes the place where they experienced family, domestic and sexual violence from a pre-determined list of responses. Where the person has experienced violence numerous times, the location of the event that prompted them to seek assistance should be recorded.
RELATED DATA COLLECTION STANDARDS:
There is no specific standard for this item; however ‘Residential Setting’ in METeOR could be used as a proxy. Further development may be needed to ensure all possible locations are included in the standard.
