Cumulative prevalence of maltreatment among New Zealand children, 1998–2015
Bénédicte Rouland (CSDA research fellow 2016-2018) and Rhema Vaithianathan explore the cumulative prevalence in New Zealand of notifications to child protective services, substantiated maltreatment cases and out-of-home placements. The study shows that one in four New Zealand children will be subject to at least one notification by age 17, an incidence of notification higher than that of medicated asthma among children.
