Recommendations for the EU to improve data collection on intimate partner violence

The following recommendations aim to support Member States in their efforts to improve administrative data collection on intimate partner violence. Reliable, systematic and comparable data on intimate partner violence (IPV) is necessary to measure the extent, dynamics and consequences of this form of violence against women.

In order to improve the reliability and comparability of data on intimate partner violence, EIGE provides four recommendations to:

  • Improve the overall quality and reliability of data;
  • Improve data availability (existing data and potential new datasets);
  • Increase the comparability of data;
  • Improve data accessibility.
