Annotation: An outcome standard and measure are proposed for use in assessing the effectiveness of official interventions in child protection proceedings.
Abstract: It is argued that the standard, as operationalized in the variable Rapid Services/Reunion, is responsive to the needs of public policy analysts concerned with child abuse and neglect. Using an inductive multivariate model, the determinants of Rapid Services/Reunion are identified and estimated. These determinants are discussed in the context of the needs of child protection policy. The analysis is based on a random sample of 210 North Carolina child protection cases. (Author abstract)
