Child abuse, advice as a result of first contacts

Number of cases in which the Child Abuse Reporting Agency (AMK) provides advice as a result of first contacts concerning abuse of a child or children (aged 0-17 years).

The AMK advises the person reporting a suspected case of child abuse. The advice given is counted as one single contact between the AMK and the informant.
