GIL, DAVID G.; AND OTHERS
THE PROGRESS REPORT ON THE NATIONWIDE EPIDEMIOLOGIC STUDY OF CHILD ABUSE REVIEWED THE STUDY FOCI OF THE SURVEY, THE SCOPE OF PARTICIPATION, THE BASIC AND COMPREHENSIVE LEVELS OF THE DATA COLLECTION, AND PARTICIPATION OF TWO NON-PUBLIC AGENCIES FOR ESTIMATES AND COMPARISON. PRELIMINARY FINDINGS OF A CALIFORNIA PILOT STUDY ON CHILD ABUSE WERE REPORTED WITH A TABLE OF NON-ABUSE CASES, A SUMMARY OF 60 CHARACTERISTICS OF VICTIMS, HOUSEHOLDS, HOUSEHOLD HEADS, PERPETRATORS, AND CIRCUMSTANCES SURROUNDING THE INCIDENT, AND 14 OBSERVATIONS DRAWN FROM THE DATA. THE FINAL REPORT OF THE 1965 SURVEY OF PUBLIC KNOWLEDGE AND ATTITUDES CONCERNING CHILD ABUSE HAD BEEN DELAYED. REPORTS AND INTERPRETATIONS OF INCOMING INFORMATION WERE PRESENTED IN 1966, AT 12 CONFERENCES LISTED. FIELD WORK AND DATA COLLECTION WILL BE CONCLUDED BY JUNE 30, 1968. PROCESSING, ANALYSIS, REPORTING, AND INTERPRETATION WILL BE CONCLUDED BY JUNE 30, 1969, AND WILL INCLUDE A CLINICAL INTERVIEW SUBSTUDY IN TWO SAMPLING UNITS.
