The National Community Attitudes towards Violence Against Women Survey (NCAS) is the world’s longest-running survey of community attitudes towards violence against women. It was initially developed on behalf of the Australian Government in 1995, drawing on an earlier 1987 survey. The 2017 NCAS collected information through mobile and landline telephone interviews with a representative sample of 17,500 Australians aged 16 years and over. The core of the survey involves components made up of questions designed to find out about people’s knowledge of violence against women (25 questions), attitudes towards gender equality (19 questions), attitudes towards violence against women (35 questions and two scenarios) and bystander intentions if witnessing violence or disrespect towards women (two scenarios).
