Technology-facilitated abuse: Victimisation experiences by Australians aged 18+
This resource provides key statistics about victimisation experiences 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 had at least one TFA victimisation experience in their lifetime
- the main subtype of TFA they were subjected to
- the percentage of victims and survivors of TFA who were in a current or former intimate partner relationship with the perpetrator
- the percentage of victims and survivors of TFA where the perpetrator was male
- some key facts about the gendered experience of TFA.
This resource should be read in conjunction with the research report, which makes recommendations on how to improve responses for victims and survivors of TFA.
