    Title: National Child Abuse and Neglect Data System.
    OMB No.: 0980-0229.
    Description: The Child Abuse and Neglect Treatment Act (42 U.S.C. 
5101 et seq.) as amended requires States ``to annually work with the 
Secretary to provide to the maximum extent practical, a report'' that 
includes 12 data items listed in the statute. The National Child Abuse 
and Neglect Data System (NCANDS), administered by the Children's 
Bureau, meets this reporting requirement. In addition, the amendments 
of 1988 require that the data system ``shall be universal and case 
specific and integrated with other case-based foster care and adoption 
data collected by the Secretary.'' There are two data components, the 
Detailed Case Data Component (DCDC), which includes the case-level data 
submitted through the Child File and some aggregated data submitted 
through the Agency File, and the Summary Data component (SC), which is 
used by States that cannot submit case-level data. No changes are being 
requested. The Summary Data Component will be phased out over the next 
few years as the number of States that can complete the Child File 
increases.
    Respondents: State Child Welfare Agencies.
