Subject:Online Access to NIS-4: Fourth National Incidence Study of Child Abuse and Neglect

The National Data Archive on Child Abuse and Neglect (NDACAN) at Cornell University and Westat are pleased to announce that Online Access to The Fourth National Incidence Study of Child Abuse and Neglect (NIS-4) is now available. The National Incidence Study (NIS) is a congressionally mandated, periodic research effort to assess the incidence of child abuse and neglect in the United States. The NIS gathers information from multiple sources to estimate the number of children who are abused or neglected, providing information about the nature and severity of the maltreatment, the characteristics of the children, perpetrators, and families, and the extent of changes in the incidence or distribution of child maltreatment since the time of the last national incidence study (Westat, 2014). You can now access the NIS-4 to conduct interactive, live analyses of the NIS-4 data, see incidence estimates, and download NIS-4 documents here: https://www.nis4.org/access_nis4.html For more in-depth analyses of NIS-4, you can order the dataset from NDACAN: Title: Fourth National Incidence Study of Child Abuse and Neglect (NIS-4) Investigator(s): Andrea J.
