  • AURIN has spatially enabled the original data: https://www.crimestatistics.vic.gov.au/family-violence-data-portal/family-violence-data-dashboard/magistrates-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.
