The survey, National Prevalence Survey on Gender-Based Violence and Generations (encuesta nacional de prevalencia sobre violencia basada en género y generaciones) is an effective tool to understand the prevalence of gender-based violence and measuring the hidden number of violence. The tool allows readers to know those violent events carried out towards women, which are not reported in any institutions and for which there are no consultations in the different public services. In addition, its results serve to design appropriate public policies to address this problem.
