Subject:Re: child maltreatment declines 12% 2006-2007

The "largest single year decline" in the matlreatment rate from 2006-07 appears to be driven by a large decline in the maltreatment rate in one state--Florida (from 33.4 per 1,000 children in 2006 to 13.2 in 2007, or 134,567 victims out of 4,032,726 in 2006 to 53,484 out of 4,043,560 children in 2007--a 60% decline in the number of victims). If we exclude Florid when computing the national average victimization rate, we find that it has been decreasing only slightly (10.9,10.8, 10,9, 10.8, 10.4 for 2003-2007). I would appreciate it if someone could tell us what explains the substantial decline in (reported) maltreatment in Florida. Best wishes, and thank you David for the information.
