(No metadata available yet for indicator 5.2.2).
This indicator is drawn from a combination of SDG indicators 5.2.1 and 5.2.2, which differ from each other by the relationship between the woman or girl and the person who has inflicted violence on them. The present indicator includes acts of violence committed by persons who are or have been close companions, as well as those committed by others; but it breaks down this relationship between the perpetrator and the victim.
This indicator is adapted from SDG indicators 5.2.1 and 5.2.2.
The information may be reinforced by data from health information systems and from judicial, social service and police databases. However, because a very large number of cases are not reported, this information should not form the basis for measurement of this indicator.
