Summary

This report brings together the latest data on the prevalence, scope, and impact of family, domestic and sexual violence in Australia. It provides information from multiple sources on victims, perpetrators, vulnerable groups, children's exposure to violence, Indigenous Australians, impacts on health and homelessness, and the economic costs to society, and identifies gaps in the data and evidence base. National data collection efforts and measurement issues are also briefly discussed. Family, domestic and sexual violence is a major health and welfare issue in Australia, with 1 in 6 women and 1 in 16 men having experienced physical or sexual violence by a current or previous partner - indeed, 99 women and 27 men were killed by a current or previous partner in one year alone.
