Violence at Home: The FACT Report 2014

Added Monday, February 02, 2015 by Action Alliance

When the first Violence at Home: The FACT Report was published in 2010, information about the extent of family violence in Virginia was scattered across state agencies, often divided by the age of the
victim or the nature of the crime. The FACT Report pulled this data into one document in an easy-to-understand format. The 2014 FACT Report is now taking this mission, to provide a comprehensive view of family violence in Virginia, a step further through the creation of a dynamic, online web portal. The portal includes 18 indicators of family violence, spanning 8 years of data for many of these measures, and presents them in an interactive report format. The information contained in this publication will highlight trends and recommendations. The full data tables that were previously located in the FACT Report and Report Appendix are now found online at: http://www.fact.virginia.gov/family-violence-indicator-locality-data-tool. To ease in the transition away from the print publication to an online data portal, this year’s FACT Report will also include report examples. Full step-by-step instructions for creating these reports can be found online at: http://www.fact.virginia.gov/step-by-step.
