Abstract: 

The following report presents the major descriptive findings from the Saskatchewan Incidence Study of Reported Child Abuse and Neglect (SIS‑2008). The SIS‑2008 is the first province-wide study to examine the incidence of reported child maltreatment and the characteristics of the children and families investigated by child welfare services in Saskatchewan. The estimates presented in this report are primarily based on information collected from child welfare investigators on a representative sample of 8,933 child welfare investigations conducted across Saskatchewan.
