This Juristat article on violence against women is organized into four sections: prevalence and severity of violence against women, risk factors associated with violence against women, impact of violence against women and responses to violence against women.

To provide a comprehensive picture of the extent and nature of violence against women, both police-reported crime data and self-reported victimization data are used.
