This is part of a major epidemiological survey of the reported incidence (new cases) of child sexual abuse in Northern Ireland.
Based on multi-source methodology, the study used computer-based record linkage techniques to find the number of incident cases occurring in the Province in 1987.
Reporters involved with the incident cases were interviewed by OEV who recorded details of the child, the abuse, and the abuser using a specially designed questionnaire.
Age-sex specific incidence rates adjusted for potential misclassification were computed and allowance made for underascertainment.
Overall, 408 Established cases were reported during 1987.
The corresponding incidence rate for Northern Ireland was 0.9 cases per 1000 children.
