dc.description.abstract The National Adult Maltreatment Reporting System (NAMRS) is the first comprehensive, national reporting system for adult protective services (APS) programs. It collects quantitative and qualitative data on APS practices and policies, and the outcomes of investigations into the maltreatment of older adults and adults with disabilities. The absence of data for research and best practice development has been cited by numerous entities, including the Government Accountability Office, as a significant barrier to improving APS programs. Policy makers, APS programs, and researchers will use the data to evaluate and improve programs. The goal of NAMRS is to provide consistent, accurate national data on the exploitation and abuse of older adults and adults with disabilities, as reported to APS agencies. NAMRS is an annual, voluntary system to collect both summary and de-identified case-level data on APS investigations. Release 1 contains information about the quantity and type of data submitted by states. (Author Text) en_US
