Due to a change in the way in which CP&P conducts investigations of child abuse/neglect in 2005, 2005 data is not comparable to prior or future years. 

Beginning in 2013, the NJ Department of Children and Families added two possible findings of child abuse/neglect investigations: established and not established. Data from 2013 onward includes substantiated and established findings.
