Supplementary notes

The source adds the following information regarding methodology:"The data analysed in this section were collected through a questionnaire that was circulated among the country Delegates in all 46 countries in which the WAVE Network is represented. The respondents were asked to indicate if there are official data on the number of femicide victims available in their countries. They were also asked to provide the number of femicide victims identified in their countries and give information about the relationship between victims and perpetrators. The following perpetrator categories were included in the questionnaire: ‘current or former intimate partner’, ‘other family member’, ‘acquaintance’ and ‘other’. The data and information received through the questionnaire were complemented by desk research.

Official statistics from the countries surveyed, when available, only cover killings of women perpetrated by current or former intimate partners and other family members. In all countries government institutions from the criminal justice system regularly collect data on the number of homicide victims. This data is not always disaggregated by the sex of victims and perpetrators. Neither is information on the relationship between victims and perpetrators systematically collected. This makes it difficult to disentangle the number of family and intimate partner-related femicide victims from all recorded female homicide victims."
