Proportion of ever-partnered women and girls aged 15 years and older subjected to physical, sexual or psychological violence by a current or former intimate partner in the previous 12 months, by form of violence and by age
This dataset evaluates 'ever-partnered women aged 18 years and over who experienced violence or emotional abuse by a partner they lived with'.
Cells in this table have been randomly adjusted to avoid the release of confidential data. Discrepancies may occur between sums of the component items and totals.
'Physical violence' includes physical assault and/or physical threat.
'Total violence' includes physical violence and/or sexual violence.
'Total ever-partnered women' includes all women who have or had a partner since the age of 15.
'Has a disability or long-term health condition' refers to a person who was defined as having a disability or long-term health condition if they had one or more conditions which had lasted, or were likely to last, for six months or more, and that restricted every day activities. People were identified as having a profound or severe core-activity limitation if they required help or supervision for one or more core activities, such as self-care, mobility or communication. For further information refer to the Glossary. Further, a specific requirement of the PSS was that interviews were conducted in private. Where a respondent required the assistance of another person to communicate with the interviewer, proxy interviews were conducted for a limited amount of the survey and this data was not retained on the final weighted file. Therefore it is likely that the PSS will under represent those with a profound or severe disability. For more details regarding proxy interviews refer to the Proxy section of the Survey Development and Data Collection page of the Personal Safety Survey, Australia: User Guide, 2016 (cat. no. 4906.0.55.003). Approximately 33% of respondents who reported a profound/severe disability, were not included in the final sample due to proxy use, or opting out.
'Australia' includes external territories.
'Main English speaking countries' includes Canada, Republic of Ireland, New Zealand, South Africa, United Kingdom and United States of America.
'Other countries' are inadequately described.
