SHALALA'S DHHS OVERSTATES CHILD ABUSE BY OVER 400%
   [INLINE]
     _________________________________________________________________
  IRONICALLY, SHALALA - A SELF-DESCRIBED "SERIOUS CATHOLIC", "DISAGREES" WITH
  THE POPE AND U.S. CARDINALS AND DEFENDS BILL (MR. ABORTION) CLINTON'S VETO OF
  THE PARTIAL BIRTH ABORTION BAN.
   
_________________________________________________________________
  THIS DHHS EXPLOITATION OF THE CHILD ABUSE ISSUE COMES AT A TIME WHEN FATHERS
  SEEKING CUSTODY OF THEIR CHILDREN, IN MOTHER-INITIATED DIVORCE ACTIONS, ARE
  BEING COERCED INTO DEFENDING THEMSELVES AGAINST A 2000% INCREASE IN FALSE
  ALLEGATIONS OF ABUSE.
   
   Source: "Child Maltreatment 1994: Reports from the States to the
   National Center on Child Abuse and Neglect - U.S. Department of
   Health and Human Services; Administration for Children and Families"
   (NCANDS)/ Released April, 1996 - National Child Abuse Month.
   The following Statements are quoted from the DHSS/NCANDS Report: 
    1. "The number of children who were the subject of reports of
       alleged maltreatment increased from 2.6 million in 1990 to 2.9
       million in 1994."
       
2. "The number of substantiated or indicated victims of maltreatment
       increased from 798,318 in 1990 to 1,011,628 in 1994, an increase
       of almost 27 percent."
    3. "Child Protective Services agencies identified almost 5,400
       children who died as a result of abuse or neglect from 1990
       through 1994."
    4. "An estimated 2.9 million children were reported as alleged
       victims of maltreatment."
    5. "The 1994 rate of children in reports was 43 children per 1,000
       children younger than 18 years of age in the general population."
    6. "Forty-eight States provided information on the investigation
       dispositions of 2,659,131 children." 
  DA*DI HAS THOROUGHLY REVIEWED THE DATA FROM THE NCANDS REPORT AND FOUND
  SIGNIFICANT, IF NOT DRAMATIC, DISCREPANCIES AND METHODOLOGICAL FLAWS.

   .01% **
   .004% .09%
   (less than 1%)
SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT METHODOLOGICAL FLAWS:
   
_________________________________________________________________
   
    1. The category Total Reported "Children" includes and combines both
       "unduplicated" and "duplicated" data from the reporting states.
       This figure would be more accurately labeled Total Reported
       "Incidents", because what is actually being reported is both
       singular incidents involving one child, and multiple incidents
       involving one child. The result of this mix of apples and oranges
       is a gross misrepresentation of the actual levels of abuse in
       America. The recalculated figure of 610,208 "substantiated" cases
       of one-child abuse was obtained by comparing "unduplicating"
       State data with "duplicating" State data. The categorical figures
       were then derived applying the same percentage representations as
       in the original data to the new corrected total.
       
2. The breakdown of "Types of Abuse" is also subject to the same
       kind of inclusion, meaning that the rates within categories are
       virtually meaningless in that the data combines multiple forms of
       abuse involving one child. This data has been retained as
       initially presented by percentage allocations. Nevertheless, it
       is clear that these NCANDS reports have been provided to numerous
       individuals, courts and agencies throughout the country - grossly
       misinforming these groups.
       
3. As one moves from table to table and graph to graph in the NCANDS
       report, the data in the various categories changes, so that one
       cannot trace a given piece of data from one source to another as
       being substantiated/unsubstantiated; unduplicated/duplicated;
       incident/child, etc.
       
4. "Definitions" in all areas of labeled "abuse", "substantiated",
       "data source", and "Children/Victims" are so vague or misleading
       as to be virtually meaningless.
       
5. No data is provided as to "Family Constellation" when DHHS
       reports that 77 to 81 percent of all abuse is "perpetrated by
       parents." Thus, we do not know from this data whether the
       "parents" are single or married, male or female, or cohabiting.
       This is a gross misrepresentation at a time when Fathers are
       being made most suspect, despite previous knowledge that 60% or
       more "parental abuse" is perpetrated by mothers, and that
       children in single- and step-parent homes are at greater risk.
       The absence of this data is misleading to family courts where
       custody is in dispute, and fails to provide vital information
       that might be used to target "at risk" populations for
       intervention.
       
6. When DHHS reports a 27% increase in "substantiated" or
       "indicated" "Victims" of maltreatment, it is essentially
       indicating; a.) an increase in allegations, b.) the success of
       it's own Child Abuse Promotion "awareness" campaign, c.) the
       broadening of vague definitions of abuse and substantiation, d.)
       the success of its own requirements which promote the generation
       of reporting at the local DHHS office level in order to maintain
       and qualify for funding.
       
7. What DHHS fails to identify as critical factors influencing
       increases in abuse allegations are; a.) corresponding increases
       in population, b.) corresponding increases in divorces, c.)
       corresponding increases in single-parenthood (the latter two
       being funded by DHHS), d.) corresponding increases in abuse
       allegations accompanying divorce/custody proceedings (actively
       encouraged and assisted by DHHS).
       
8. Given the broad disparities between State reporting systems, many
       categories and data groups range from 9 to 48 State inclusion,
       with limited consistency across groups.
       
9. These summary comments and the following data analyses and
       specific comments raise the question whether the DHSS/NCANDS
       report has any relation to reality. 
   
_________________________________________________________________
  SPECIFIC METHODOLOGICAL / REPORTING FLAWS:
   
_________________________________________________________________
   
  "SOURCES OF DATA AND DATA COLLECTION METHODS" FOR "REPORTING"
   
   DATA SOURCE INDICATED: NUMBER OF STATES INDICATING: "No Information
   Supplied:" 5 Questionable or Unclear Sources: 13 System Being
   "Revised": 2 "HotLine" Phone Reports: 3 "Automated State Data System":
   27 "Computer Generated Data": 3 Given the importance and impact of
   these reports and the resulting social outcomes, it is very
   disturbing that nearly half of the reporting states have reporting
   systems that are virtually anecdotal and unreliable. In many cases,
   the data is being handled by three or four different individuals or
   departments before arriving at a central source, providing multiple
   opportunities for data degradation.
     _________________________________________________________________
  "LEVELS OF EVIDENCE TO SUBSTANTIATE REPORTS"
   LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: NUMBER OF STATES USING: "No Information Supplied":
   8 "Some Credible Evidence": 16 "Credible evidence": 10 "Level of
   Risk": 1 "Preponderance of Evidence": 11 "Fair Preponderance": 1 "More
   Than 50% Credible Evidence": 1 "Probable Cause": 1 "Substantial and
   Material Evidence": 1 "Clear and Convincing Evidence": 1 "Caseworker
   Determination": 1
   COMMENTS:
    1. It must be noted that once a "report" of abuse is
       "substantiated", the alleged pepetrator is then placed on the
       State Registry of abusers. That does not mean that they have been
       convicted in a Court of Law, only that they have been
       "substantiated". If they subsequently clear themselves in court,
       they must then petition DHHS for expunction from the State
       Registry.
       
2. The absence of clear and consistent criteria across reporting
       States, makes all of the resulting data suspect. Further, the
       fact that many of the "caseworkers" making these determinations
       possess minimal education (B.A.) or specific training, makes the
       "substantiated" report highly suspect. Finally, even when the
       "caseworker" is a master's level, trained evaluator, their
       personal autonomy in making these decisions is highly
       questionable both from an ethical and constitutional perspective.
       It is ludicrous that a decision which so dramatically impinges on
       the alleged "perpetrators" life, and that of their children in
       the case of parents, should be made outside a formal courtroom.
       
3. The fact is that a "substantiated" report of abuse remains
       nothing more than an "allegation", based on as little as "some
       credible evidence" or "fair preponderance". 
   CONSIDER THE VAGUE DEFINITIONS OF "ABUSE" AS APPLIED BY STATES:
   NEGLECT: (Ratings: Severe, general, caretaker absence, or incapacity)
       "Failed to provide needed care even though financially able to do
       so; or was offered means to do so" NOTE: Death from abuse or
       neglect in the U.S. was 1,111 children in 1996, or 1.6 children
       per 100,000.
       
MEDICAL NEGLECT: "Withholding appropriate health care or perinatal
       exposure to drugs."
       
PHYSICAL ABUSE: "Physical acts caused or could have caused physical
       injury to child."
       
SEXUAL ABUSE: "Sexually exploitative activities."
       
EMOTIONAL ABUSE OR NEGLECT: "Acts that caused or could cause serious
       behavioral or mental disorders." 
   It is clear from the vagueness of the above definitions that
   "caseworkers" are given ludicrous levels of power in people's lives.
   For example, from the above definitions a parent could be held to be
   abusive for allowing their child to be exposed to cigarette smoke; for
   allowing their child to be seen nude in the tub by a neighbor; for
   taking their child to the funeral of a close relative; or for allowing
   their child to go rollerblading without elbow and knee pads. I have in
   fact, direct knowledge of a parent whose child was removed from the
   home for not being allowed to go to Disneyland.
   When you consider the above statistics, remember that more than one
   million abortions, including Partial Birth Abortions, go unpunished
   in America each year. Consider as well, that more than one million
   children are exposed to the separation or divorce of their parents
   each year. And finally, consider that more than 40% of all American
   children under the age of 18 do not live in the same house as their
   natural Father.

DEPRIVING CHILDREN OF FATHERS REMAINS THE MOST POPULAR, UNPUNISHABLE FORM OF
  CHILD ABUSE IN AMERICA TODAY.
   
   May 1, 1996
   Senator Charles E. Grassley
   135 Hart Senate Office Building
   Washington, D.C. 20510-1501
   
RE: Enclosures
   Dear Senator Grassley,
   It is alarming to see a report produced and distributed by the United
   States Government that is as distorted and methodologically flawed as
   that produced by D.H.H.S. with regard to Child Abuse. As a social
   scientist, and a reviewer of articles submitted to journals, I am
   appalled by the lack of objectivity, in fact, outright
   misrepresentation that pervades the NCANDS summary - as I have
   outlined in the attached materials.
   One must also seriously question the motivation of Secretary Shalala
   in condoning this alarmist publication, while simultaneously
   defending and downplaying the practice of Partial Birth Abortions.
   This is the worst form of disingenuousness, and suggests that
   Secretary Shalala is motivated primarily by the justification of
   funding for the DHHS behemoth, rather than any genuine concern for
   children. DA*DI unequivocally decries any form of child abuse - but
   this kind of sensationalism will ultimately do more to diminish it as
   a public concern in the same way that television violence has inured
   us to human suffering. Therefore, DA*DI requests that you join us in
   calling for responsible science and reporting. We also ask you to
   support criminalization, as a felony, false allegations of Child
   Abuse by a party to a divorce proceeding (which tend to damage
   children as much as the accused parent), and for Partial Birth
   Abortions, as warranted under DHHS guidelines for abuse and neglect.
   Sincerely,
   
Gerald L. Rowles, Ph.D.
   President - DA*DI
