Third National Incidence Study on Child Abuse and Neglect: Executive Summary
A concise summary of the results of the congressionally mandated Third National Incidence Study of Child Abuse and Neglect (NIS-3) completed in 1988. The NIS-3 findings are based on a nationally representative sample of over 5,600 professionals in 842 agencies serving 42 counties.
Fourth National Incidence Study on Child Abuse and Neglect: 2001-2009
The NIS studies are designed to estimate broadly the incidence of child maltreatment in the United States by including both cases that are reported to the authorities as well as those that are not. A unique contribution of the NIS has been the use of a common definitional framework for classifying children according to types of maltreatment as well as the severity of maltreatment. Key demographic characteristics of maltreated children and their families are also collected, which enables the provision of information about which children are most at risk.
