Performance Improvement 2011-2012. What Are The Experiences of Children Involved With The Child Welfare System As They Transition to Adolescence?


This study was the third in a series presenting findings from the National Survey on Child and Adolescent Wellbeing Wave 5 follow-up. It provided information about 1,484 adolescents who were reported for maltreatment to the child welfare system when they were between 3 and 11 years old.

Some children's cases were closed after investigation while others had a case opened to child welfare services. Although the majority of the children remained at home after investigation, a small proportion was removed from their homes. Six to seven years after the child protective services investigation, these adolescents were 11 to 17 years old.
