Subject:Re: Fwd: Followup from USA TODAY

Hi Tom, I'm writing to follow up on your request to the listserv about child maltreatment during economic downturns. Did get any responses, and did USA Today publish an article on this topic? Thanks very much. Adrienne Fernandes Congressional Research Service **************************** Adrienne L.

Is anyone familiar with research on this? 2) Also, is there any evidence that unemployed parents are more likely to commit child abuse and/or neglect? 3) Are there county or state data showing changes in numbers of child abuse/neglect cases reported since the U.S. recession began in December 2007? Thank you for your willingness to post these questions and forward any answers on to me. Please reply privately to mailto:tph3@cornell.edu or share your comments to the list.
