VACS Reports

Public Use Violence Against Children Survey Dataset

The Violence Against Children and Youth Survey (VACS) datasets provide an opportunity for researchers to conduct investigations with the rich, detailed information available in the VACS, and helps increase our understanding of and ability to prevent and respond to the epidemic of violence against children and adolescents.

The Violence Against Children and Youth Survey datasets for Malawi, Cambodia, Kenya, Swaziland, Haiti, Tanzania and Nigeria are available for public use. The public use datasets are prepared by the Division of Violence Prevention at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and are made available with permission of the respective country governments.

The rich data from the VAC Surveys increases our understandings of the frequency, drivers, and impact of violence. We believe that providing the public access to these datasets will provide an exciting opportunity for researchers to conduct investigations with the rich, detailed information available in the VACS, and will help increase our understanding of and ability to prevent and respond to the epidemic of violence against children.
