Violence against women is a persistent and ongoing problem in Canada and around the world. It affects women’s social and economic equality, physical and mental health, well-being and economic security. Decision-makers require a clear understanding of the nature and severity of social problems in order to develop effective responses. In 2002, the Federal/Provincial/Territorial Status of Women Ministers released Assessing Violence Against Women: A Statistical Proﬁle. The Proﬁle introduced a number of violence indicators that are intended to monitor changes over time, serve as benchmarks, and highlight emerging problems. This updated edition revisits these indicators, expands upon them, and assesses the current situation.
