Measuring Violence against Children: Inventory and assessment of quantitative studies
Thos report summarizes the main findings by the Data and Analytics Section of UNICEF on behalf of the CP MERG Technical Working Group on Violence against Children (TWG on VAC) on violence against children.
The Group was tasked with developing tools that can guide and support the collection of reliable and useful data on violence against children in an ethically sensitive manner. As a first step, the Working Group identified the need to review recent quantitative studies that aimed at producing prevalence data. The review was conducted to provide an overview of major areas of progress, gaps and challenges in the development of data-collection tools and methodologies.
