Do you agree with the suggestion to present national administrative data on intimate partner violence as a separate theme in the new entry point?

Hello everyone, I am sorry for being late.

I agree with the suggestion the national administrative data on intimate partner violence to be presented as a separate theme in the new entry point because it is easier to find what are you looking for, even though there is duplication with the other entry points.

Ligia Nobrega

Thanks for your contribution Ivana. One of EIGE's major studies led last year was on the improvement of administrative data on intimate partner violence (IPV). This effort should also be reflected in the new gender-based violence entry point which takes us to create a separate theme specifically devoted to IPV.

Thank you once more for this question Katerina. Another very good suggestion was already mentioned by @Spyridon Bolakis regarding the need to make more clear Intimate Partner Violence in the database.

I am sorry I do not have the time to contribute a lot. I new entry point is fantastic.

What I want to highlight is the need to clarify what is included in each indicator (perhaps is may problem and I do not find the information easily). For example, what is included under "sexual assault" or "other sexual offecnces" in each country. Would it be clearly explained in the metadata by country? or it is already and I do not find the information. This is very important to understand the data and to clearly comunicate with experts and national authorities.

Dear Marta, thank you for your feedback. It complements the idea which was raised by other participant to have a description of each type of violence displayed under metadata. What regards non comparable data from national administrative data sources, the definititions of particular type of violence are provided for each country. 

Katerina Mantouvalou

Thanks @Marta Adiego The metadata provide information on the units of measurement and the legal definitions of different offences. This should allow you to interpret data correctly for each Member State.

Thanks all. I would like to ask you now to look at one specific indicator under Intimate partner violence --> Administrative data -->Women victims of intimate femicide (aged 18 and over) committed by a male intimate partner (aged 18 and over), as a share of the women victims of homicide (aged 18 and over)

Is it clear what the data represent and are the metadata clear and self-explanatory? I would like to remind you that for the purpose of this online discussion we have made data available only for one Member State - Austria.

To access the relevant spreadsheet, you can click on this link and see both data and metadata for the specific indicator on femicide - https://www-s.eige.europa.eu/gender-statistics/dgs/indicator/genvio_int_...

Once you've had the opportunity to browse through the spreadsheet, we would welcome any suggestions for how this proposed spreadhseet could be made even clearer?

Katerina Mantouvalou's picture

Thanks @Irina Ulcica. Participants can always come back to this point after the end of this discussion, the page will remain open for the rest of the day. I would like now to to the last point on our agenda. We would like to discuss EIGE's proposal for the visual presentation of data and metadata on gender-based violence.

Katerina Mantouvalou's picture

If you have just joined us, do not hesitate to also answer some of the previous questions – all of your input is welcome and will be taken onboard for the final report.

We would now like to ask you to do the following exercise:

Please follow these steps on EIGE’s Gender Statistics Database:

  1. Please go to EIGE’s Gender Statistics Database
  2. Click on the ‘Gender-based violence entry point’
  3. Select data available on Sexual violence -> Sexual assault -> Administrative data -> Available national administrative data on sexual assault
  4. Select data – you should see a chart providing information on the availability of data to populate the indicator for each Member State
Katerina Mantouvalou's picture

What are your impressions of the visual presentation of the data? Is it clear and self-explanatory what ‘AVAILABLE (1)’ and ‘NOT AVAILABLE (0)’ means in this table?

Ligia Nobrega's picture

Here is the comment received from CYSTAT on this task: 

When following the steps presented in the agenda for task 5, the use of the visualization tool was made easier. Perhaps an instruction note or document should supplement the DB concerning the use of the visual presentations.

Katerina Mantouvalou's picture

That's a very good suggestion. Thanks @Ligia Nobrega and @CYSTAT for this proposal.

Tamás Antal Heizer's picture

I think it is clear, althoug the actual text above the chart ("UNIT: AVAILABLE(1); NOT AVAILABLE(0)") should be more highlighted. For the first glance I could hardly notice it.

 

Irina Ulcica

Thank you very much for this feedback, it is good for us to know and we will take this onboard. 

Ivana Naskova's picture

I agree, very good suggestion from CYSTAT, brief guidelines for using the visual presentations would be welcomed.

Ligia Nobrega's picture

Many thanks Ivana and Tamas, very valid comments.
An important point of information is that on the basis of our users' feed-back, we have been developing a Frequently asked questions document and a step by step guide for users. This will be displayed through  the Database interface after its substantial revision we are planning for 2018 together with a new entry point on gender-based violence with more updated data.

Katerina Mantouvalou's picture

Thank you all for your valuable feedback. If you would like to add anything in relation to the visual presentation of data or any other point raised in today's discussion we will take it on board while preparing the final report. The page will remain open for the rest of the day if you would like to post any additional comments.

Katerina Mantouvalou's picture

There will be more opportunities for us to meet in this space to discuss the Database further.

Katerina Mantouvalou's picture

We will summarise all your suggestions and comments concerning the Database in a detailed summary report. It will be circulated among all participants for further feedback and will undoubtedly shape EIGE’s planning for the future database. We will try to implement at least some of the changes you have suggested.

Ligia Nobrega's picture

I personnaly thank you all for your persistence while being online, engaging with the proposed exercises and sending extremely relevant and helpfull comments. As usual these are valuable for supporting EIGE shaping the tool according to users and producers of gender statistics. 

We felt very honoured by having you today. Feel free to comment further and let's keep in touch!

Katerina Mantouvalou's picture

Thank you very much again and have a nice rest of the day!

Vytaute Vailionyte's picture

Many thanks for your active participation and thorough comments. We will definitely take them on board while finalizing the new entry point on gender-based violence. Hope to see you all in the upcoming online discussions!
