Brief Description

The National Institute of Legal Medicine and Forensic Science produces the annual publication Forensis: Datos para la vida, which contains analytical descriptions of statistical behaviour relating to the various forms of violence (homicide, suicide, domestic violence, intimate partner violence, etc.), which it has derived from statistical consolidation of its expert appraisals and sexology reports. These statistical analyses include a sociodemographic description of each form of violence. In 2010, it published Masatugó (meaning a badly treated woman who does good), reporting on an epidemiological investigation into violence against women during the period from 2004 to 2008.
