The goal of the 2013 national population-based survey on domestic violence was to use a similar methodology and data collection tools as the 2007 survey and collect reliable data on the nature and extent of domestic violence against women, and help-seeking behaviors of battered women. Such a time seriesl data set enables the Government of Albania, along with IOs and NGOs, to better understand domestic violence and begin to monitor trends in domestic violence against women over time, as well as to explore the impact of recently developed prevention, intervention, and protection on the nature and extent of domestic violence. Data and findings from this study can also serve to inform legislative reforms and policy development, shape prevention and interventions efforts, and improve protection and support for women and children that are victims and survivors of domestic violence.
