In 1996, the Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act was amended by Public Law 104–235 to require that any state receiving the Basic State Grant work with the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to provide specific data on child maltreatment, to the extent practicable. These provisions were retained and expanded upon in the 2010 reauthorization of CAPTA (Pub. L. 111– 320). Each state to which a grant is made under this section shall annually work with the Secretary to provide, to the maximum extent practicable, a report that includes the following: 1. The number of children who were reported to the state during the year as victims of child abuse or neglect. 2. Of the number of children described in paragraph (1), the number with respect to whom such reports were— A. substantiated; B. unsubstantiated; or C. determined to be false. 3. Of the number of children described in paragraph (2)— A. the number that did not receive services during the year under the state program funded under this section or an equivalent state program; B. the number that received services during the year under the state program funded under this section or an equivalent state program; and C. the number that were removed from their families during the year by disposition of the case. 4. The number of families that received preventive services, including use of differential response, from the state during the year. 5. The number of deaths in the state during the year resulting from child abuse or neglect. 6. Of the number of children described in paragraph (5), the number of such children who were in foster care. 7. A. The number of child protective service personnel responsible for the— i. intake of reports filed in the previous year; ii. screening of such reports; iii. assessment of such reports; and iv. investigation of such reports. B. The average caseload for the workers described in subparagraph (A). 8. The agency response time with respect to each such report with respect to initial investigation of reports of child abuse or neglect. 9. The response time with respect to the provision of services to families and children where an allegation of child abuse or neglect has been made. 10. For child protective service personnel responsible for intake, screening, assessment, and investigation of child abuse and neglect reports in the state— A. information on the education, qualifications, and training requirements established by the state for child protective service professionals, including for entry and advancement in the profession, including advancement to supervisory positions; B. data of the education, qualifications, and training of such personnel; C. demographic information of the child protective service personnel; and D. information on caseload or workload requirements for such personnel, including requirements for average number and maximum number of cases per child protective service worker and supervisor. 11. The number of children reunited with their families or receiving family preservation services that, within five years, result in subsequent substantiated reports of child abuse or neglect, including the death of the child. 12. The number of children for whom individuals were appointed by the court to represent the best interests of such children and the average number of out of court contacts between such individuals and children. 13. The annual report containing the summary of activities of the citizen review panels of the state required by subsection (c)(6). 14. The number of children under the care of the state child protection system who are transferred into the custody of the state juvenile justice system. 15. The number of children referred to a child protective services system under subsection (b)(2)(B)(ii). 16. The number of children determined to be eligible for referral, and the number of children referred, under subsection (b)(2)(B)(xxi), to agencies providing early intervention services under part C of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (20 U.S.C. 1431 et seq.). The Children’s Bureau proposes to continue collecting the NCANDS data through the two files of the Detailed Case Data Component, the Child File (the case-level component of NCANDS) and the Agency File (additional aggregate data, which cannot be collected at the case level). Technical assistance will be provided so that all states may provide the Child File and Agency File data to NCANDS. There are no proposed changes to the NCANDS data collection instruments. New fields were implemented during the previous OMB clearance cycle in support of the CAPTA Reauthorization Act of 2010 and to improve reporting on federal performance measures.
