The Personal Safety Survey (PSS) will expand on the 1996 Women's Safety Survey and will include men for the first time. The survey measures the nature and extent of violence against men and women and the effects of this violence. It also provides information on abuse, harassment and on people's feelings of safety within the home and in the community. The publication will contain summary data on personal safety issues such as people's fears for their personal safety; people's experiences of sexual and physical assault; people's experience of partner violence; people's experiences of stalking; experience of emotional abuse; experience of child abuse; socio-demographic information; actions people took after these experiences (such as contacting police or victim support services); and effects on people of incidents of violence. Data are classified by demographic characteristics. Includes some comparisons with the 1996 Women's Safety Survey (cat. no. 4128.0).
