(NCJ 186027) March 2001
OJJDP Crimes Against Children Series, Bulletin, 16 page(s)
Hamby, S. L., Finkelhor, D.,
 
Presents information about questionnaires designed to elicit information about child victimizations. This OJJDP Bulletin notes several benefits deriving from the use of standardized questionnaires. Specific guidelines are provided to help the reader determine the type of victimization to be measured, how the questionnaire should be administered, whether the results need to correspond to crime and child protection categories, what period of time is being measured, what the child's ages are, and whether the results will be compared with national norms. Specific questionnaires are reviewed, and recommendations for further reading are offered.
