EIGE’s 2021 study on the costs of gender-based violence in the European Union focused on intimate partner violence as a subset of gender-based violence and provided an updated estimate of the costs of gender-based and intimate partner violence in the EU. EIGE calculated the cost of gender-based violence in the EU and in each Member State based on extrapolated data from the United Kingdom. The study is accompanied by this technical report, which provides details on the method and data used for the cost estimation for the UK case study, as well as the extrapolation of the results to the EU Member States.
