Australians' attitudes to violence against women: Findings from the 2013 National Community Attitudes towards Violence Against Women Survey (NCAS)

The National Community Attitudes towards Violence Against Women Survey (NCAS) is a large-scale national survey that provides a snapshot of community attitudes to violence against women in 2013 and over time, and point to the specific needs for future prevention activity. This is the third survey of its kind, with the first undertaken in 1995 and the second in 2009. The survey investigates four key areas related to violence against women and its prevention: 1. Community knowledge of violence against women; 2. Attitudes towards violence against women; 3. Attitudes towards gender roles and relationships; and, 4. Responses to witnessing violence and knowledge of resources. The survey involved more than 17,500 twenty-minute telephone interviews with a cross-section of Australians aged 16 years and older.
