Report – Australian Domestic and Family Violence Death Review Network: Data report 2018

4 June 2018

This report provides detailed data on intimate partner homicides that have occurred across Australia between 2010 and 2014.

This report has been authored by Australian Domestic and Family Violence Death Review Network and published by the Domestic Violence Death Review Team, New South Wales.

The report presents findings of a specialised national domestic and family violence homicide dataset regarding histories of domestic and family violence leading up to intimate partner homicides. It aims to enhance understandings of domestic violence homicide in Australia, and to enhance intervention and prevention efforts.

Among its key findings, the report highlights that between 1 July 2010 and 30 June 2014:

  • there were 152 intimate partner homicides in Australia which followed an identifiable history of domestic violence
  • the majority of intimate partner homicides involved a male killing their female (current or former) intimate partner, and the majority of those males who killed a female had been the primary abuser against that female prior to her death.
