Training material title
Violence against Women Survey Module
Brief description and comments

UNECE has developed and tested this survey module on violence against women, as part of its activities in the United Nations Development Account project "Enhancing capacities to eradicate violence against women through networking of local knowledge communities".

The aim of the module is to enable countries to collect a minimum set of information to measure the prevalence of physical, sexual and intimate partner violence contained in the Report of the Friends of the Chair of the United Nations Statistical Commission on Indicators on Violence against Women (see para 8).

The proposed questionnaire and methodology were discussed at two UNECE Expert Group Meetings on Measuring Violence against Women in 2009 and 2010, respectively.

The module has been tested in Armenia, Georgia, Mexico, the Republic of Moldova and South Africa.
