We received data from the Domestic Violence and Victims’ Support Unit, Madina on gender-based violence in the La Nkwantanang Madina Municipal Assembly. The data highlights the number of cases recorded for notable domestic violence offenses in the area over a three-year period. The assembly is boarded on the West by the Ga East Municipal, on the East by the Adentan Municipal, the South by Accra Metropolitan and the North by the Akwapim South District. Some of the notable communities in the assembly include Madina and Adenta.
From the data we received, we have developed a dashboard to help people explore the data. The filter option on the right-hand side of the dashboard gives users the opportunity to filter out specific domestic violence offenses and also the year in which the cases were compiled. Below is the dashboard we developed with the data. Users can see the number of cases recorded for the various offenses visualized in the first bar graph. The ages of the victims are also visualized in the second bar graph and the gender of the victims is visualized in a pie chart at the bottom of the dashboard.
