Abstract: 

The Northwest Territories Incidence Study of Reported Child Abuse and Neglect (NWTIS-2003) is the first territory-wide study to examine the incidence of reported child maltreatment and the characteristics of the children and families investigated by the Northwest Territories health and social services authority. The NWTIS-2003 tracked 372 child maltreatment investigations conducted in all Health and Social Service Areas across the Northwest Territories in the fall of 2003. Weighted territorial annual estimates were derived based on these investigations.
