Recurrence of Allegations

Of all children who were subjects of a maltreatment allegation during a 6-month base time period, what percent were subjects of another maltreatment allegation within 6, 12, 18, and 24 months of that first allegation? The first allegation in the base period is stratified by disposition type--substantiated, inconclusive, unfounded and assessment only--and recurrence counts and percents are reported for all disposition types. Children with a recurrence are counted only once, according to their most severe disposition. Non-recurrence counts and rates represent children who had no subsequent allegation during the follow-up period.
