Subject:2008 report

Dear members, The thought occurred to me as I was following the discussion about the trends in this report that the data reported is from 2008 and the economic downturn started in the fall of 2008 and became more severe and prolonged in 2009 with little recovery in 2010. Perhaps the expected increase in reported maltreatment will come in the next years' reports. As a family's situation becomes more desperate-no new job, limited funds consumed, house in foreclosure, etc., the strain within the family increasing with a greater chance of abuse/maltreatment. Just a thought. Phyllis K. Marion, DNSc, CPNP pkm15@columbia.edu
