Understanding Rape in West Yorkshire
A research project of the Department of Sociology.
West Yorkshire Rape Strategic Group commissioned research in order to understand rape as fully as possible as it is experienced throughout West Yorkshire.
- To develop an up to date Problem Profile of rape across West Yorkshire
- To identify gaps in service provision
We are using a multi-methodological approach, gathering qualitative and quantitative data to address the research questions. This includes: semi- structured interviews with service providers and policy makers, analysis of police data, GIS mapping of services and reported incidents, analysis of voluntary sector data.
The findings will be contained in a report to West Yorkshire Rape Strategic Group in April 2010.
