The APS TARC is able to provide data from the National Adult Maltreatment Reporting System (NAMRS). NAMRS collects state Adult Protective Services (APS) data to provide consistent, accurate national data on the maltreatment of older adults and adults with disabilities.
NAMRS data can assist programs in comparing their data with other states of comparable administration, practice or policy.
Examples of past data requests:
• What months do other states experience the highest number of new reports?
• How many staff do states similar to mine have?
• What is the standard of evidence used by APS programs with a similar structure to mine?
• How many states use Emergency Protective Orders in lieu of guardianship?
If you have a data request, contact us with details and we’ll see what we can do to help!
The Administration for Community Living (ACL) is seeking stakeholder input on potential changes to NAMRS. NAMRS has collected administrative and program data from state (including U.S. Territories and the District of Columbia) APS programs since 2016. To prepare for the 2023 OMB reauthorization of the system, ACL is holding a series of listening sessions to obtain feedback from stakeholders on potential improvements in the system.
