Abstract: 

The Alberta Incidence Study of Reported Child Abuse and Neglect (AIS-2003) is the first provincewide study to examine the incidence of reported child maltreatment and the characteristics of the children and families investigated by Alberta child welfare services. The AIS-2003 tracked 2,653 child maltreatment investigations conducted in a representative sample of 11 Child Welfare Service Areas across Alberta in the fall of 2003. Weighted provincial annual estimates were derived based on these investigations.
