COVID-19 Family Violence Data Portal

1 December 2021

December 2021 update: 

The COVID-19 portal has been expanded to include forecasting projections, which allows comparisons to be made between expected vs observed service figures.


The COVID-19 Family Violence Data Portal (portal) examines Victorian family violence incidents and service use trends across more than 30 data indicators. Data housed in the portal examines trends from 1 January 2019 through to 31 December 2020, with comparisons drawn between 2019 and 2020 figures.

The portal was funded as a component of the Victorian Family Violence Database, and was developed in collaboration with over 20 Federal, State and private sector services.
