This project aims to quantify the relationship and interdependencies between risk factors and service utilisation among family homicide victims and offenders.
This project conducts an analysis of criminal justice and coroners’ data on family homicide using Bayesian networks.
Significance This project will produce a model to predict the probability of a lethal outcome, and enable resources to be targeted for interventions to parties identified as high risk prior to escalation that could lead to death. The knowledge from this project will help save the lives of victims, change the life course of offenders and reduce exposure to violence by other family members to break intergenerational patterns of family violence.
