Safeguarding Rural Australia : Introduction, Framework and Background to Secondary Data Analysis
Carrington, Kerry, Hogg, Russell, McIntosh, Alison, & Scott, John (2009) Safeguarding Rural Australia : Introduction, Framework and Background to Secondary Data Analysis. [Working Paper] (Unpublished)
This report provides an introduction to our analyses of secondary data with respect to violent acts and incidents relating to males living in rural settings in Australia. It clarifies important aspects of our overall approach primarily by concentrating on three elements that required early scoping and resolution. Firstly, a wide and inclusive view of violence which encompasses measures of violent acts and incidents and also data identifying risk taking behaviour and the consequences of violence is outlined and justified. Secondly, the classification used to make comparisons between the city and the bush together with associated caveats is outlined. The third element discussed is in relation to national injury data. Additional commentary resulting from exploration, examination and analyses of secondary data is published online in five subsequent reports in this series.
