This is an extensive summary of a report published in Swedish in December 2006, which was produced and written mainly by Elis Envall, Senior Advisor and Annika Eriksson, PhD at the National Board of Health and Welfare, Sweden. The purpose of this study is to describe the total estimated costs to society violence against women may lead to, for instance, intervention by the police, absence from work, visits to medical centres and the social services. The perpetrator may be imprisoned, which would lead to direct costs for correctional treatment and indirect costs regarding a production loss.
