Rise in number of domestic abuse reports in Scotland
In the vast majority of cases, a man was accused of victimising a female partner.
Reports of domestic abuse in Scotland rose slightly last year, new figures show.
A total of 58,810 incidents were reported, up 1%, and nearly half resulted in a crime being recorded.
In the majority of cases - almost eight in ten - a man was accused of victimising a woman.
Justice secretary Michael Matheson described the statistics as "unacceptable".
"While figures have been relatively stable over the past five years, they remain evidence of the unacceptable levels of domestic abuse in Scotland," Matheson said.
"We know these figures don't paint the whole picture as victims are often too afraid to report abuse.
"We also know domestic abuse disproportionately affects women."
More than a third of reported incidents happened at the weekend and about 42% occurred in the victim's home.
Assault was the most common form of abuse, occurring in 37% of incidents, followed by breach of the peace at 33%.
The figures were published in the Scottish Government's annual report on domestic abuse.
Matheson added: "We have allocated record funding of £20m over three years towards eliminating violence against women and girls and we are taking forward legislation to introduce a new offence, criminalising the type of coercive and controlling behaviour that can constitute domestic abuse."
Reports of domestic abuse have remained relatively stable since 2011 at around 58,000 to 60,000 incidents a year, according to statisticians.
