Krishnan, Vijaya; Morrison, Kenneth B.
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v19 n1 p101-14 Jan 1995
This study employed an ecological perspective to predict variations in the rate of child abuse and neglect among children aged 0 to 19 years in Alberta, Canada, in 1986. Positive correlates of the child maltreatment rate included population change, unemployment rate, percent Native, and North West region of Alberta. Implications for assessing intervention effectiveness are briefly discussed. (Author/JDD)
