Title, Synopsis and Publications Investigators and Collaborators
Risk profiles for domestic violence and the impact of domestic violence on the health and wellbeing of women who come from vulnerable circumstances (i.e. culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds or report having a disability).
This project will examine the health and wellbeing of women who experience domestic violence and who either come from (a) culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds or (b) have reported having a disability. In addition, the analyses will investigate factors that may increase vulnerability to domestic violence with the aim of identifying risk profiles. The variables used to indicate abuse and violence will use the data from the consistent question across surveys and cohorts about intimate partner violence (which relates to violent relationships with partners and spouses), as well as the more extensive Community Composite Abuse Scale that has been repeatedly asked in several surveys for the two youngest cohorts of the ALSWH (ie. those women born 1989-95 and 1973-78).
