What Counts is What Gets Counted

Advances in policies, programs and services addressing violence against women have been founded in good data. Once we started bringing the problem out of the shadows, naming it, and assessing its prevalence and consequences for the health, social and economic well-being of individual Canadians, our communities, and society, decision-makers had to pay attention. This is why we say “what counts is what gets counted”. Our Collaborative has worked for over a decade to develop new measures and analytical approaches to understand its scope and impact.
