INTRODUCTION AND KEY FINDINGS
This article presents additional analysis of partner violence data collected in the Australian Bureau of Statistics' (ABS) 2016 Personal Safety Survey (PSS), and addresses policy questions highlighted in the ABS publication Defining the Data Challenge for Family, Domestic and Sexual Violence (ABS cat. no. 4529.0).
The article is divided into four sections:
The statistics presented throughout the article are available as data tables in Excel spreadsheet format and can be accessed from the Downloads tab. The data tables contain number and proportion estimates, and their corresponding relative standard errors.
While the PSS collects the same information from both men and women, detailed partner violence data for men is not sufficiently statistically reliable for the analytical purposes of this article. When cross-tabulating data about men’s experiences of partner violence with other variables of interest, the data quality diminishes as a result of the comparatively fewer number of men that have experienced partner violence. For more information about data quality refer to the Personal Safety Survey Technical Note (ABS cat. no. 4906.0). Data about men’s experiences of partner violence are available in Personal Safety, Australia, 2016 (ABS cat. no. 4906.0).
