Developing a survey on gender-based violence

From 15 to 16 May, the Agency took part in the meeting of the Eurostat task force charged with developing a survey on gender-based violence.

The meeting discussed the technical challenges of implementing the survey.

Given that the survey interviews will address sensitive personal experiences, the statistical institutes have to pay particular attention to the selection of highly skilled interviewers and to provide them with further training to ensure that high ethical and safety standards are met.

The recommendations discussed at the task force meeting will be put in practice when national statistical institutes carry out the pilot data collection in 2018-2019 and the full-scale survey in 2020-2021.
