Personal Safety Survey 2016
This fact sheet uses infographics to communicate prevalence data relating to women’s experiences of violence, including sexual violence, sexual harassment, stalking and the impact of violence on women’s feelings of safety.
The data is drawn from the Australian Bureau of Statistics’ Personal Safety Survey 2016 which was conducted from November 2016 to June 2017. The survey collects information from men and women aged 18 and over about the nature and extent of violence experienced since the age of 15. You can access the full report from their website.
In clear infographics this fact sheet illustrates the following in Australia:
- gendered prevalence of intimate partner violence
- gendered prevalence of sexual violence
- prevalence of stalking
- comparative statistics on violence experienced by women with disability
- gendered impact of violence on feelings of safety.
