Overview

Missouri and Illinois have two very different systems for handling child abuse and neglect hotline calls. In Illinois, all calls go through an investigative track where reports are found to be "indicated" or "not indicated." Missouri uses a two-track system whereby hotline calls are tracked according to severity into investigations or family assessments. Missouri's Children's Division in the Department of Social Services requires follow-up with 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. Therefore, instead of a child abuse/neglect rate, a rate of "children at risk of abuse and neglect" is calculated to capture those children whose cases have been substantiated, as well as those whose families have been advised to seek preventive services.
