In April 2018 the Report of the Scoping Group on Sexual Violence Data recommended that a national survey on the prevalence of sexual violence should be conducted, among other things. The CSO was requested by the Minister to oversee the development and delivery of a new national survey on the prevalence of sexual violence in Ireland. The findings of the survey will inform policy in several areas and is currently under development.
This page brings together all the information the CSO has published relating to the Sexual Violence Survey (SVS).
A informational session on the development of the SVS and workshop was held on the 22nd May 2019. The following presentation is a summary of the key points of the day and it also contains a summary of the discussion in the workshop section of the day.
