This memo focuses specifically on the month of September (data coding and uploading lags by a month) for the eight NSRP focus states: Borno, Yobe, Kano, Kaduna, Plateau, Rivers, Bayelsa, and Delta.

In September, for the third month in a row, the NSRP Sources filter generated more reports about Violence Affecting Women and Girls (VAWG) than any other source integrated onto the platform, an indication that the data collection effort is filling an important gap in the information landscape. There are now 43 self-identified Agents of Peace focusing on issues of gender in the NSRP states, ranging from nine in Rivers State to zero in Yobe. Quantitative data suggests that although the month of September was slightly improved in terms of the number of VAWG incidents in the eight NSRP states (for the second month in a row), on an annualized basis, 2014 is on track to be the worst year since 2009.
