The purpose is also to present data which can be used to design measures to prevent or limit the victimisation, catch incidents that take place and improve the care provided to the victims.

This is the second survey produced by Brå, the Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention, on behalf of the Government. Almost 14,000 ordinary members in the Riksdag (Swedish Parliament) and assemblies of delegates (municipalities, county councils and regions) have been asked about their exposure to harassment, threats and violence in 2012.
