HOW MUCH DOES VI­O­LENCE COST?

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Front Page -

The eco­nomic cost of vi­o­lence against women in Australia is es­ti­mated to rise to $15.6 bil­lion by the year 2021-22. This fig­ure does not take into ac­count youth vi­o­lence in the home.

The Aus­tralian Bureau of Statis­tics es­ti­mates that two main causes of home­less­ness amongst youth are do­mes­tic and fam­ily vi­o­lence and fam­ily break­down in the home.

Crim­i­nal be­hav­iour in later life can be as­so­ci­ated with wit­ness­ing or de­vel­op­ing ag­gres­sive be­hav­iour at a young age. Not iden­ti­fy­ing child­hood pre­dic­tors of ado­les­cent crim­i­nal be­hav­iour such as ag­gres­sion can have con­se­quences and costs on so­ci­ety, es­pe­cially on crim­i­nal jus­tice and so­cial ser­vice ex­pen­di­tures.
