WAVE Mapping Report

WAVE MappingIn February 2016, WAVE published a report titled "WAVE Mapping - Administrative Data Collection by Women's Support Services in Europe: National Women's Helplines, Women's Shelters, and Women's Centers" which explores the situation of data collection in specialist women’s support services in Europe, with the aim to map existing data collection methods and systems in Europe (in the European Union and additional European countries).
This study is situated within a greater European focus on improving the availability and quality of administrative data collection and supports Article 11 of the Istanbul Convention, which mandates state parties to “collect disaggregated relevant statistical data at regular intervals”.
