This project aims to assist European Union (EU) Member States in implementing EU-wide indicators on administrative data collection on intimate partner violence, rape and femicide, which have been developed by EIGE. The project also aims to help Member States develop a classification system for femicide cases. As part of the project, EIGE analyses the current situation of data collection on intimate partner violence, rape and femicide in 30 different jurisdictions across all 27 EU Member States and the United Kingdom.
The analysis provides a statistical assessment of the quality and comparability of data in national data collection systems. This assessment gives policymakers an overview of what comparable and disaggregated data is available for policymaking, and highlights the strengths and limitations of the data.
- To assess the progress made at national level in improving data availability, in order to provide uniform data on intimate partner violence and enhance EU data comparability.
- To improve data collection on gender-related killings of women and girls by developing a classification system.
- To propose recommendations for the EU to further harmonise and collect better quality data on violence against women, including recommendations addressing gaps in the International Classification of Crimes for Statistical Purposes (ICCS).
