The Impact of Case Characteristics on Child Abuse Reporting Decisions.
Zellman, Gail L.
Child Abuse and Neglect: The International Journal, v16 n1 p57-74 1992
Using national survey data on child abuse reporting, the impact of selected case and personal characteristics was examined. Previous abuse, severity, and recantation were powerful predictors of abuse-relevant judgments and reporting intentions. Child age, perpetrator intent, and socioeconomic status also were influences.
