dc.description.abstract This report challenges the prevalent definition of repeat maltreatment, assessing it more broadly in Alaska, to provide additional information for policymakers and other Alaskans working to better protect children. We look at repeat maltreatment among Alaska children over the period from 2005 through 2013, examining how the rate of repeat maltreatment differs, when it’s based only on substantiated abuse and when it’s based on all investigated reports, including those not substantiated. In addition we assessed the workload burden on OCS intake and investigating units, as well as chronic maltreatment. 4 We used case-level data from the National Child Abuse and Neglect Data System (NCANDS), a federally-sponsored national data archive to which Alaska and other state report data on investigated and substantiated maltreatment. Data are available only for 2005 through 2013. Since we don’t know the number of investigations or substantiations involving children born prior to 2005, we included only those born in or after 2005 and for whom complete data were available. en_US
