3 Introduction This report was prepared by the Audit, Quality Control and Research Office of the State of Hawaii Department of Human Services. A copy of this report is also available on the Department's website at The Hawaii Revised Statutes (HRS) Chapter 350 defines child abuse and neglect and assigns the Department of Human Service to receive and investigate reports of child abuse and neglect and to maintain a central registry of reported child abuse and neglect cases. The CPSS database system serves as the Department s central registry. All data presented in this statistical report come from the CPSS. The Department also participates in the National Child Abuse and Neglect Data System (NCANDS), a federally sponsored effort that collects data on child abuse and neglect known to child protective services agencies in the United States. The mandate for NCANDS is based on the 1988 amendments to the Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act (CAPTA) which directed the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to create a national data collection and analysis program for state-level child abuse and neglect information. Data presented in this statistical report was produced in a manner consistent with NCANDS reporting. However, there is a difference in reporting periods. The reporting period for NCANDS is the federal fiscal year running from October through September. This report summarizes by calendar year. In this report, data from 1999 and before were based on report date, data from 2000 and after were based on disposition date. Report any problems or questions specifically regarding this statistical report to: Ricky Higashide, Research Staff Supervisor Audit, Quality Control and Research Office (AQCRO) State of Hawaii - Dept. of Human Services P.O. Box 339 Honolulu, Hawaii Any request for information on the Department's policy and procedures on child protection or for data not presented in this report should be submitted to the Director of the Department of Human Services. ii
