Statistical Framework For Measuring The Gender-related Killing Of Women And Girls (also Referred To As “femicide/feminicide”)
This document provides a comprehensive statistical framework for measuring the gender-related killing of women and girls (femicide/feminicide). Besides the statistical definition of such killings, the framework identifies a typology of gender-related killings of women and girls (femicide/feminicide) and the list of variables that can be used to identify and count the various types of such killings. The definition and typology are aligned to the structure and framework of the International Classification of Crime for Statistical Purposes (ICCS), which can therefore be applied independently from the specific national legislation on such crimes. The framework also identifies main data that should be collected for providing information on victims, perpetrators and state response to gender-related killings of women and girls (femicide/feminicide).
