Problems. It is considered strong in cases of results of court or prosecution procedures and sanctions, but less accurate in case of data on victims, offenders and their relationship or forms of violence. The inaccuracy might be caused also by lack of clear definition of competencies and responsibilities for data input.
No information. The interviews did not reveal any issues of reliability as interviewers were not able to assess it as statistics are products of computerized system and they were not aware of the process itself.
Good. Data are collected on monthly basis but elaborated on annual basis. In addition, they are based on court procedure without taking into account date of incident.
- Over time
Electronic filling of the database is envisioned.
