VCAMS Proportion of young people who feel safe

Victorian Child and Adolescent Monitoring System - Proportion of young people who feel safe. This data is collected as part of the Victorian Student Health and Wellbeing Survey (VSHWS), also known as 'About you' by DET.

The VCHWS was collected in 2006, 2009 and 2013. As only 2013 is stratified for the 17 DHS local areas, only 2013 data are presented on the portal.

These data are collected from a sample of parents of children aged 0 to 12 years via telephone interview. In 2013, the sample was 7000 households. Data are weighted against population benchmarks to provide state estimates.

The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) defines Standard Error (SE) as a measure of the variation between any estimated population value that is based on a sample rather than the true value for the population. The Relative Standard Error (RSE) is the standard error expressed as a fraction of the estimated value and is usually displayed as a percentage.

Relative standard errors of 25% to 50% should be used with caution. Relative standard errors greater than 50% are considered too unreliable for general use.
