Subject:How to get data on the number of child abuse cases at county/municipality levels in U.S. and Canada.

Dear colleagues, Hi, I am Kota Takaoka, a postdoc at the University of British Columbia. I plan to research the relationship between economical factors and the number of child abuse / neglect cases in fishing communities in the U.S. and Canada. Therefore, I need some advice on how to get the following data: - Child abuse/neglect case numbers at the county level or as low as zip code level in the US and child abuse/neglect case numbers at the municipality or postal code (first 3 digits only) level in Canada. Basically I need the resolution to be able to tell me the number of child abuse/neglect cases in a fishing community. I tried to find them in NDACAN but was unsuccessful. Also the Canadian Incidence Study shows no public data. Furthermore, I understand the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act(HIPAA)might protect data related to postal codes. Can anyone comment on this? I don’t intend to try the spatial analysis, but I would just like to compare costal fishing communities and their number of child abuse/neglect cases. I would appreciate if you would give me any suggestions and feedback. Sincerely yours, Kota Takaoka ======================================================================= Kota Takaoka, Ph.D. / Clinical psychologist / Forensic interviewer Postdoctoral Fellowship for Research Abroad, Japan Society for the Promotion of Science Visiting Researcher, University of British Columbia Visiting Researcher, Aiiku Research Institute E-mail: kotavision1@gmail.com HP: www.kotavision.com Twitter: @chronologic1 ========================================================================
