The indicator is calculated by the Ministry of Justice's Research Office. The number of women who have indicated that they have been subjected to forced intercourse within the last 12 months in proportion to all women. The indicator differs from the UN definition as follows: 1) The indicator includes women aged 16-74 at the interview time. UN definition is 15 years or older. 2) The indicator includes women who have stated that they have been subjected to forced intercourse. The UN definition also includes women who have been exposed to other forms of sexual violence than forced intercourse. From 2019 the indicator includes women who have been exposed to other forms of sexual violence than forced intercourse. However the distribution by place of occurrence is still only for women who have been exposed to forced intercourse.
