This dashboard is a comprehensive visualisation and monitoring tool of available data about gender-based violence and femicide in South Africa. Data sources contributing to the dashboard are Statistics South Africa’s Victims of Crime (VOC) survey data, the South African Police Service’s (SAPS) crime statistics, and the National Prosecuting Authority’s (NPA) most recent annual report. The objective of the dashboard is to offer a one-stop platform that collects credible and comprehensive data on GBVF across the country. Through this dashboard, we highlight the extent of South Africa’s challenge in addressing gendered injustice. It must be acknowledged that inherent data flaws such as under-reporting exists with GBVF related data and multiple sources. The specific limitations of each data source will be outlined at the beginning of each data-source dashboard.
