This report up-dates the costs of domestic violence first published in The Cost of Domestic Violence in 2004 by the Women and Equality Unit of the Department of Trade and Industry. The estimates in this report are centred on 2008, the most recent year for which data is available, while those in the original report were centred on 2001.
While domestic violence is terrible enough in its own right to justify policy interventions, the scale of the costs adds to these arguments. By demonstrating that the cost of domestic violence is borne by the wider economy and society, not only the victims, it is hoped to make a contribution to policy development to reduce and eliminate this violence.
