Methodological note

The Eurostat indicator measures the share of women from the age of 15 who answered "yes" when they were asked whether they have experienced physical and/or sexual violence by a partner or non-partner in the 12 months prior to the interview. The indicator is based on a survey of the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA), which has a single wave, made in 2012.

The Catalonia indicator is based on the results of the Survey on Gender-Based Violence in Catalonia, in its latest edition. The 2016 edition measured the percentage of women from the age of 16 who answered “yes” when asked if they had suffered one or more assaults of physical and / or sexual violence by a couple or not a partner in the 12 months prior to the interview.
