ACT Domestic and Family Violence Data Collection Project Report

This report from the Domestic Violence Prevention Council presents the findings from the ACT Domestic and Family Violence Data Collection Project, which was commissioned by the then Attorney General, Simon Corbell. The Council was asked to identify options for improving domestic and family violence data collection in the ACT. The aims of the project were to:

  • Identify existing domestic and family violence data in the ACT;
  • Identify a core set of domestic and family violence indicators for the ACT;
  • Measure performance against the indicators using the existing data; and
  • Identify gaps and develop a plan to improve data collection.

To build a stronger evidence base for domestic and family violence in the ACT, the Council recommended that a mandatory minimum dataset for demographic and domestic and family violence data is developed and implemented.
