6. Jay County Archival Indicators of Risk
No one lives in isolation. We all belong to a community, and, actually, to many communities simultaneously. We belong to our immediate family, our extended family, our neighborhood, our town and our nation, to name a few. Others might include religious communities, clubs, school and work. We all want our community, our county, and our state to be a great place to study, to work and to live.
Many risk factors affecting families have been presented in earlier sections of this volume (e.g., poverty, unemployment, single parent status, and lack of health insurance). The analysis presented here is at the level of the county, state and nation, but PREV-STAT™ can easily analyze at the level of the neighborhood, where prevention is most effectively undertaken. Therefore, you are encourage to call the Indiana Prevention Resource Center and take advantage of the PREV-STAT™ Service to support your work in prevention in your neighborhood and community.
CSAP archival indicators of family risk include Family Management Problems, Family Conflict, and Family Attitudes and Involvement, issues which impact most intensely in the confines of the home. Other statistics that are available and would be of relevance in this category are child abuse and neglect.
