Data released: Victorian Family Violence Database

The Victorian Family Violence Database (FVDB) collates data from a range of services and government agencies that respond to family violence in Victoria.

As part of work to support the Royal Commission into Family Violence, the Crime Statistics Agency (CSA) analysed and reported on FVDB data holdings for the 5-year period from 2009-10 to 2013-14.

This work has now been published by the Royal Commission into Family Violence on their website, and includes information about:

  •  the incidence of family violence across aspects of the family violence system represented within the FVDB
  • the characteristics of victims and perpetrators, such as their gender and age
  •  the nature of the relationships between perpetrators and victims
  • family violence amongst specific population groups, Culturally and Linguistically Diverse communities, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and people with a disability
  • family violence across Victoria's geographic regions.

A report summarising the CSA's analysis is available in Volume VII of the Commission's report here (External link).

The full set of data tables on which the report is based are also available here. (External link)
