Data Set European Union

Cataloguing Violence Against Women in Europe

The European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA), a human rights advocacy agency, has published the first EU-wide survey on violence against women, containing data from interviews in 2012 with 42,000 women across Europe. FRA conducted the survey to provide a more comprehensive view on violence against women throughout the EU’s 28 member states, because though many countries collect this data in some capacity, they use different methodologies, making the results incomparable. The data, which can be examined on both the country and EU-level, should help inform policies designed to prevent this kind of violence.
