VIC CSA - Family Violence - Childrens Court Affected Family Member Rate (LGA) July 2013-June 2018

This dataset presents the footprint of the rates of Affected Family Members (AFMs) of Family Violence Intervention Order (FVIO) applications heard in the Victorian Children's Court, retrieved from Courtlink. The data spans the financial years in the period of July 2013 to June 2018 and is aggregated to 2011 Australian Statistical Geography Standard (ASGS) Local Government Areas (LGA).

The Victorian Family Violence Database is a repository for a range of different datasets relating to family violence clients and service use, extracted from the data holdings of a variety of government agencies.

The rate of AFMs per 100,000 population is calculated using the count of AFMs on original applications in a LGA and the Estimated Resident Population (ERP) of that LGA. The rate is calculated using the following formula: AFM Rate = (Number of AFMs/ERP count) x 100,000. ERPs are based on populations provided by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS).

Please note:

  • AURIN has spatially enabled the original data: https://www.crimestatistics.vic.gov.au/family-violence-data-portal/family-violence-data-dashboard/childrens-court.
  • To avoid double counting individuals, demographic information of applicants/AFMs and respondents are of those on original applications.
  • To maintain confidentiality, person-based counts with a value of 3 or less are given a value of 2 to calculate totals.
  • Due to improvements made in data processing since the database release ending 30 June 2017, slight movement has occurred in numbers of AFMs and the number of applications outcomes.
  • Data was extracted from Courtlink on 30 August 2018.
