|Title:||Using demographic risk factors to explain variations in the incidence of violence against women||Contributor(s):||O'Donnell, CJ (author); Smith, A (author); Madison, J (author)||Publication Date:||2002||DOI:||10.1177/088626002237854||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/584||Abstract:||This article offers statistical support for the contention that demographic risk factors influence the incidence of some women's experiencing violence more than others. Our results were generated using a binary probit model and 6,332 observations from the 1996 Australian Women's Safety Survey. For purposes of comparison, we identified a set of benchmark demographic characteristics as those occurring most frequently in the data set and estimated that if a woman were to have all of these characteristics, the probability she would have experienced violence in the past 12 months was 6.7%. We found that the risk varied with levels of post school education, income, ethnic background, number and age of children, marital status, and age. Employment status, school-leaving age, and socioeconomic status had no statistically significant effect on the risk of experiencing violence once other factors were considered. This analysis may provide a basis for violence reduction and prevention programs.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Journal of Interpersonal Violence, 17(12), p. 1239-1262||Publisher:||Sage Publications||Place of Publication:||Thousand Oaks||ISSN:||0886-2605||Field of Research (FOR):||140212 Macroeconomics (incl Monetary and Fiscal Theory)||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 139
