Risk Assessment in Child Protective Services: Consensus and Actuarial Model Reliability.
Baird, Christopher; Wagner, Dennis; Healy, Theresa; Johnson, Kristen
Child Welfare, v78 n6 p723-48 Nov-Dec 1999
Compared reliability of three widely used child protective service risk-assessment models (one actuarial, two consensus based). Found that, although no system approached 100% interrater reliability, raters employing the actuarial model made consistent estimates of risk for a high percentage of cases they assessed. Interrater reliability for the actuarial model was much higher than for the other systems. (Author)
