VIC CSA - Family Violence - Domestic/Family/Sexual Violence Rate (LGA) June 2016-June 2018

This dataset presents the footprint of the rates of Victorian domestic/family/sexual violence patients retrieved from Ambulance Victoria. The data spans the reference period of June 2016 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 patients per 100,000 population is calculated using the count of events occurring within a LGA and the Estimated Resident Population (ERP) of that LGA. The rate is calculated using the following formula: Rate per 100,000 = (Number of events/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:
  • Data concerning family violence and sexual violence cannot easily be disaggregated. The data includes events of sexual violence by a non-familial perpetrator.
  • The data used in these data tables count the number of records provided by Ambulance Victoria. This translates to the number of patients (non-unique) who were the subject of an event which involved Ambulance Victoria attendance.
  • To maintain confidentiality, person-based counts with a value of 3 or less are given a value of 2 to calculate totals.
