Total Cases and Substantiation Rate of Adult Abuse in Arizona

Loading Data...

Visualization Notes:

Adult Protective Services defines abuse as:  (1) intentional infliction of physical harm;  (2) injury caused by negligent acts of omission; (3) unreasonable confinement; and (4) sexual abuse or sexual assault.

* In July 2007 the new APS Appeals and APS Registry law was passed which requires a burden of proof which is Preponderance of the Evidence. This may account for substantiation rates decreasing during that period.
