Rebbe, Sattler, and Mienko Consider Associations Between Demographics and Child Maltreatment in New Publication
Posted: 9/2/2022 (CSDE in the News)
CSDE External Affiliate Rebecca Rebbe, Affiliate Joseph Mienko, and co-author Kierra Sattler recently published new research in Pediatrics. The article aims to determine the role of race/ethnicity and poverty in the likelihood of children younger than age 3 years hospitalized because of child abuse and neglect-related injuries being reported to child protective services (CPS) and being assigned a specific maltreatment diagnostic code. The authors used population-based linked administrative data from Washington state comprising of birth, hospitalization, and CPS records to explore these associations.
