This paper aims to highlight the link that exists between statistical data aimed at understanding and monitoring the phenomenon of violence against women and gender policies. After the analysis of the international contexts, in which the importance of this link and its repercussions on the national context at legislative and political level is explained, the national panorama of gender policies and the new approach to study gender based violence will be analyzed, as well as, its causes and conse-quences, in official statistics.
