Working Group on National Child Maltreatment Data Collection Pre-congress Meeting

Beginning at ISPCAN’s XIth International Congress on Child Abuse and Neglect held in Dublin in 1996, a small but growing group of ISPCAN members have met at regional and international events to discuss country-wide child maltreatment data collection efforts. The primary objectives of these sessions have been to:

1. Identify and share various prominent data collection approaches and findings
2. To create a network of professional researchers involved in developing systematic national data collection
3. To analyze trends at national and international levels that can contribute to policy reform

Through these meetings and by encouraging greater participation, the group hopes to overcome major challenges in collecting child maltreatment data that include: The difficulty of identifying key governmental representatives who are involved in national data collection; the existence of siloed data collection practices tied to sectors or treatments; inexperience, lack of momentum or unfamiliarity with data collection in some countries; and socio-economic divides.
