Changes of Victim in version 6.0

The Victim item is the item which have had the most updates in version 6.0 which been added 2 subobjects and 124 fields in version 6.0.

Cause, Needs assessment and Assistance relationships

The relationship between Cause and Needs assessment is not given i.e. just because a victim has a Cause (to be a victim), it does not mean that he/she has a Need, because needs are related to the victims’s social conditions and work situation. A victim may have a need even if he/she does not have a Cause recorded.

The relationship between Need and Assistance is not given i.e. just because Assistance is given in order to meet a need it does not mean that the need is fulfilled. A victim may receive assistance even if he/she does not have a recorded cause and/or need.
