Crime: Domestic Violence
House of Lords
Lord Campbell-Savours (Labour)
asked Her Majesty's Government:
What statistics on suicide arising out of domestic violence are collected either nationally or locally; and whether such statistics identify the gender of such suicide cases.
Lord Davies of Oldham (Deputy Chief Whip (House of Lords), HM Household; Labour)
The information requested falls within the responsibility of the National Statistician, who has been asked to reply.
Statistics based on death registration identify the method of suicide and the age, gender, marital status and occupation of the deceased, but not the circumstances of or background to the event.
