Term Definition
arrow Child Abuse & Neglect (CA/N)

See the Child Welfare Information Gateway for definitions and descriptions of child abuse and neglect.

arrow Child Abuse/Neglect Rate per 1,000 (Illinois)

Indicator #6B in the 2009-10 CMSL. This statistic is meant to capture the number of children who were victim to abuse or neglect (as defined by an indicated investigation) for every 1,000 children in the total population. This calculation is used for Illinois figures only; see Indicator 6A for Missouri geographies. Child abuse includes physical, sexual, and emotional abuse, and child neglect. CMSL Calculation: (Number of indicated child abuse or neglect victims x 1,000/Total estimated 2008 population under age 18). Data Source: Illinois Department of Children and Family Services (2008)

arrow Child Abuse/Neglect Reports that Required Follow-up Services (Missouri)

Indicator #5A in the 2009-10 CMSL. This statistic is meant to capture the percentage of reports, out of all reports received, that verified the occurrence of child abuse and neglect, for Missouri. (See Indicator 5B for Illinois). Child abuse includes physical, sexual, and emotional abuse, and child neglect. In Missouri, child abuse and neglect hotline calls receive either an investigation or a family assessment. The Missouri Children’s Division requires follow-up services for those families whose cases have gone through: 1) an investigation with substantiation, 2) an investigation with no substantiation, but recommended preventive services, or 3) a family assessment with recommended preventive services. CMSL Calculation: (Number of child abuse or neglect reports that required follow-up services [investigation: substantiated, unsubstantiated with preventive services needed and family assessment services needed] /Total reports of alleged child abuse or neglect). Data Source: Missouri Department of Social Services (2008)

arrow Child Care Capacity

Indicator #12 in the 2009-10 CMSL. This indicator provides only a point-in-time look at the number of licensed provider slots available in each ZIP code. The number of licensed child care slots can change dramatically over time. In the State of Missouri, a home-based child care provider is required to be licensed only if they have more than four children (who are unrelated to the provider) during hours of operation. Unlicensed child care providers are not required to report data or meet any formal accountability standards, and therefore the number of unlicensed child care slots is largely unknown. Data Source: Children’s Home + Aid (as of March 2009); Child Day Care Association (as of Aug. 2009)

arrow Children at Risk of Abuse/Neglect Rate per 1,000 (Missouri)

Indicator #6A in the 2009-10 CMSL. This statistic is meant to capture the number of children who were victim to abuse or neglect for every 1,000 children in the total population. This calculation is used for Missouri figures only; see Indicator 6B for Illinois geographies. Child abuse includes physical, sexual, and emotional abuse, and child neglect. CMSL Calculation: (Number of children at risk of abuse or neglect x 1,000/Total estimated 2008 population under age 18). Data Source: Missouri Department of Social Services (2008)

arrow Children of Metropolitan St. Louis

The Children of Metropolitan St. Louis Report, or CMSL, is the primary research publication of Vision for Children at risk. The printed book of about 150 pages includes ZIP Code and county-level data and maps on over 30 indicators of child well-being, for the 5 central counties of the St. Louis Metropolitan area: St. Charles County, St. Louis County, St. Louis City, Madison County, IL, and St. Clair County, IL. Data is generally published every two years; VCR has produced the printed document for almost 20 years.

arrow County

One of the geographical boundaries in the Children of Metropolitan St. Louis Report. This report tracks data on the 5 central most counties of the 16-County Metropolitan Statistical Area that makes up St. Louis. The five counties are: St. Charles (MO), St. Louis County (MO), St. Louis City (MO), Madison (IL), and St. Clair (IL). County boundaries do not correspond to local ZIP Code boundaries; a single ZIP Codes can, and often does, transverse 2 or more counties. For this reason, county-level data in the CMSL report is not the always the mathematical sum of values for the ZIP Codes within it.

arrow Crime Rate

Indicator #27 in the 2009-10 CMSL. CMSL Calculations: Missouri and St. Louis City: (Total no. of crimes x 1,000/Total 2008 population). Illinois: (Total no. of crimes x 1,000/Total 2007 population).

Illinois crimes include: murder, criminal sexual assault, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, theft, motor vehicle theft, and arson. St. Louis City crimes include: murder, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, larceny, auto theft, and arson.
