Technology-facilitated abuse: Self-reported perpetration by Australians aged 18+
This resource provides key statistics about the perpetration of technology-facilitated abuse (TFA) drawn from a nationally representative survey of Australians aged 18 years and over.
The data has been drawn from Technology-facilitated abuse: National survey of Australian adults’ experiences (Powell et al., 2022), one of three research reports produced as part of the “Technology-facilitated abuse: Extent, nature and responses in the Australian community” project.
This resource sets out:
- the number of Australians who have engaged in at least one TFA perpetration behaviour in their lifetime
- the main subtype of TFA they engaged in
- the percentage of perpetrators of TFA who were in a current or former intimate partner relationship with the victim
- the percentage of perpetrators of TFA who had also experienced TFA victimisation
- perpetrators’ main motivation for engaging in TFA.
This resource should be read in conjunction with the research report, which offers potential solutions to prevent, detect and dissuade TFA perpetration.
