Query Builder for Alaska's Child Protective Services Query Module - Screened-In Reports of Any Maltreatment. Screen-Ins are reports that OCS determines constitute a potential threat to child safety, an assessement is completed for these reports.

Overview

The Office of Children's Services child maltreatment data have been compiled by the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services, Section of Women's, Children's, and Family Health, Maternal and Child Health Epidemiology Unit. Data are available by counts of unique children reported by year, counts of all reports by year, and rates of unique children reported by year. Rates are calculated using Alaska Department of Labor population estimates for the denominator. Counts and rates are available for 'Reports', 'Screen-ins', and 'Substantiations'. Reports include all Protective Services Reports (PSR) made to OCS. Screen-Ins are reports that OCS determines constitute a potential threat to child safety, an assessment is completed for these reports. Substantiations are Screen-Ins in which OCS has concluded that the allegation of maltreatment or risk of maltreatment was supported or founded by State law or policy. This is the highest level of finding by OCS. Years and age ranges are based on date of incident. Data includes counts of unique children by year. Children may be reported multiple times when aggregating years. Please contact Jared Parrish for questions about the OCS data query.
