Migrants and Maltreatment: Comparative Evidence from Central Register Data.
Larson, Oscar W., III; And Others
Child Abuse and Neglect: The International Journal, v14 n3 p375-85 1990
When names of 24,000 children from migrant education censuses were cross-referenced with abuse registries, it was found that migrant children were significantly more likely to be maltreated than other children, although incidence rates varied from state to state. The paper emphasizes research methodology, access to central registers, and protection of subject confidentiality. (Author/JDD)
