National Survey of Child and Adolescent Well-Being, 2001-2010
United States. Department of Health and Human Services;
||The National Survey of Child and Adolescent Well-Being (NSCAW) provides detailed, longitudinal information on the experiences of children and families who have entered the child welfare system. NSCAW includes a child welfare services investigation sample of over 5,000 reported child victims from 92 different communities in 36
states. These children were under the age of 15 years between October 1999 and December 2000, when their child protective services investigation took place. NSCAW also includes a long-term foster care sample of an additional 727 children who had been in out-of-home care for about 12 months over the same timeframe. Baseline data collection took place an average of four months following the child maltreatment
investigation, and follow-ups were conducted 1, 1½, 3, and 5 years afterward. The oldest children in NSCAW were young adults at the latest follow-up, when they were asked additional questions about employment, housing, family formation, and adult functioning.
