The allegation filter applies to allegations only, not substantiations.

Small counties often have very volatile data - high one year, low the next - due to the small population sizes. Don't read too much into small county data unless patterns are consistent across years.

To be counted in this measure, a report must have been made and then screened-in by an intake specialist. Cases that were not screened-in did not meet the statutory definition of child abuse or neglect or had no need for an assessment or an investigation.
