Subject:Re: Lifetime incidence of child maltreatment

Katherine M. Keyes et al. have a paper in the British Journal of Psychiatry titled Childhood Maltreatment and the Structure of Common Psychiatric Disorders (2012, vol. 200, pp. 107-115) that estimates lifetime incidence of maltreatment among what they claim is a nationally representative sample of US adults (it probably is, but I haven't read that methodology myself). It is retrospective by self-report but uses an instrument with good psychometric properties. Also the NIS-4 (and presumably it's predecessors) has an estimate of that as well, I believe. Here's the reference: Sedlak, A.J., Mettenburg, J., Basena, M., Petta, I., McPherson, K., Greene, A., and Li, S. (2010). Fourth National Incidence Study of Child Abuse and Neglect (NIS–4): Report to Congress. Washington, DC: U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families. and here's the URL to it: http://www.acf.hhs.gov/programs/opre/research/project/national-incidence-study-of-child-abuse-and-neglect-nis-4-2004-2009 There are others, but these are the two I can put my hands on right now.
