Subject:RE: How to get data on the number of child abuse cases at county/municipality levels in U.S. and Canada.

NCANDS has two county level fields but NDACAN masks counties with few incidences of child abuse or neglect, so you may not be able to use NCANDS for fishing villages.

The US only reports this at the state level via NCANDS. However, I believe that the states report these stats to the federal government disaggregated by county, even though that is not routinely made publicly available. You could contact the U.S. Children's Bureau to request the county level data and see what they say...

I plan to research the relationship between economical factors and the number of child abuse / neglect cases in fishing communities in the U.S. and Canada. Therefore, I need some advice on how to get the following data: - Child abuse/neglect case numbers at the county level or as low as zip code level in the US and child abuse/neglect case numbers at the municipality or postal code (first 3 digits only) level in Canada. Basically I need the resolution to be able to tell me the number of child abuse/neglect cases in a fishing community. I tried to find them in NDACAN but was unsuccessful. Also the Canadian Incidence Study shows no public data. Furthermore, I understand the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act(HIPAA)might protect data related to postal codes. Can anyone comment on this? I don’t intend to try the spatial analysis, but I would just like to compare costal fishing communities and their number of child abuse/neglect cases. I would appreciate if you would give me any suggestions and feedback.
