Estimating the Occurrence of Child Maltreatment and Risk-Factor Effects: Benefits of a Mixed-Design Strategy in Epidemiologic Research.
Bertolli, Jeanne; And Others
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v19 n8 p1007-16 Aug 1995
This article discusses methodologic limitations of four observational study designs (ecologic, case-control, cross-sectional, and cohort) that dominate the child abuse and neglect literature and identifies key features of an "ideal" study of child maltreatment. It proposes a new mixed-design strategy, which improves ability to identify child maltreatment cases from an at-risk population. (Author/DB)
