Measuring Violence

Violence is a sensitive issue and a challenging phenomenon to measure. Violence takes both a human and economic toll on society and can have serious consequences for people who experience it and those around them. The latest edition of Australian Social Trends, 2007 (ABS cat. no. 4102.0) includes articles on Interpersonal Violence and Women's Experience of Partner Violence, drawing data from a number of sources.

These articles provide useful summaries for those seeking information about domestic violence and the characteristics of violence within the community, including physical and sexual violence, stalking and harassment.
