For example, a parent cannot be deemed neglectful if he or she has an apartment with insufficient space, especially if that same parent was denied or placed on a waiting list for a larger apartment by the housing authority. Exclusions based on impoverishment sometimes are challenging for investigators who must determine whether a dangerous household condition or situation is a function of limited resources or a reflection of parental behavior associated with child neglect (Goldstein, 1999).

The Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act of 1974 set subsequent definitional standards for mandatory reporting statutes.
