Crime Statistics Agency releases 2020-21 Victorian Family Violence Database

The Crime Statistics Agency has today released key family violence measures from the 2020-21 Victorian Family Violence Database.

For the first time, the Database includes additional data on sexual assaults in Victoria (External link), in response to the Victorian Government’s commitment to building the evidence base under the Family Violence Reform Rolling Action Plan 2020-2023. This provides insights into alleged offender and victim characteristics, as well as a summary of geographic trends across the state.

A summary of trends in Victorian family violence data throughout the COVID-19 pandemic is also included in the COVID-19 Family Violence Data Portal (External link).
