Develop and maintain the Victorian Family Violence Database

Recommendation:
205
Status:
Implemented

Who is leading the change

  • Department of Justice and Community Safety

The Crime Statistics Agency maintain and develop the Victorian Family Violence Database and consider what additional data sets should be incorporated in the database, how links between all relevant data sets can be created, and how the database can otherwise be developed.

  • As part of our approach, the Crime Statistics Agency (CSA) will develop the Victorian Family Violence Database (the Database) by:

    • including new sources in the database to increase the breadth of information available
    • redeveloping the Database to enable increased future utility, particularly with regard to possible data linkage elements and the development of new outputs
  • The Database has been live on the CSA website and has released 4 annual publications since May 2017. Outputs are accessible via a family violence data portal which includes interactive data dashboards, data tables and infographics.

    The sources contained within the Database have been expanded since 2017 to include records from the Homelessness Data Collection, Coroners Court, and Ambulance Victoria. Overall the Database is now an established state resource for access to information and data on family violence incidents in Victoria.
