We have interpreted this question as referring to the number of females with a police marker indicating they are a potential victim of domestic abuse. The data requested is not held by the Home Office. Individual police forces may hold this data.

For the year ending March 2020, the Crime Survey for England and Wales (CSEW) showed that an estimated 2.3 million adults aged 16 to 74 years experienced domestic abuse in the last year.
