DCF: Town Pages

Town Pages

We are currently in the process of redefining our Annual Town Pages Reports. This is a large scale project that will be released in sections as each grouping of data is finalized.

Section A: Number of Accepted Reports and Allegations to DCF

Glossary
Accepted Reports Represents all Reports called in to the Child Abuse and Neglect Careline containing allegations that meet the operational definition of abuse and/or neglect.  A Report contains one or more children as alleged victims of abuse and/or neglect.
Substantiated Reports Represents all Accepted Reports where the Investigation resulted in a finding of reasonable cause to believe that neglect and/or abuse has occurred.
Total Allegations Represents all individual Allegations of Abuse and/or Neglect contained in an Accepted Report. Each alleged child victim can have one or more associated allegations.
Substantiated Allegations Represents all individual Allegations of Abuse and/or Neglect contained in an Accepted Report where the Investigation resulted in a finding of reasonable cause to believe that neglect and/or abuse has occurred.
Children Substantiated as Abuse/Neglect/Uncared For Represents the number of unique (unduplicated) children that were the victim of substantiated Abuse and/or Neglect during the State Fiscal Year.


Note: For confidentiality reasons, data for towns with 10 or less Children Substantiated as Abuse/Neglect/Uncared For will not be reported as an individual town. However, data on the Statewide page does reflect the data for these towns in the totals.

Note: Town OTHER represents towns in the database that do not correspond with any official Connecticut town names. This anomaly is a result of incorrect data entry or other technical factors.
