Data Definition
Data reporting dates reflect date "Initial referral received". Regional Ns will not sum to State total because in some records the region is not identified, for example those coded as "administrative" to restrict access. Legislative changes may have impacted the rates of “founded” abuse. More intakes have been found “unsubstantiated” since October 2008 when Washington eliminated the “inconclusive” finding. In addition, a new “Risk Only” intake type was created, which does not require findings because there are no identified victims. The agency continues to work with staff to narrow the use of “Risk Only” and that may result in additional fluctuations in this data. Values for 2009 and 2010 cohorts were recalculated following data cleanups by the field (late entry of investigations) and minor corrections to extraction of allegations from FAMLINK. Values differ slightly from those reported earlier. Data from 2010 forward reflects that Regional reporting has been combined from six regions into three regions.
