DESLANDES, Suely; MENDES, Corina Helena Figueira; LIMA, Jeanne de Souza  and  CAMPOS, Daniel de Souza. Indicators of local actions for reporting and recording cases of domestic violence and sexual exploitation of children and adolescents. Cad. Saúde Pública [online]. 2011, vol.27, n.8, pp. 1633-1645.

Information is essential for combating violence against children and adolescents and reclaiming their rights. This study presents indicators for the evaluation of local government actions for reporting and recording cases of domestic violence and sexual exploitation of children and adolescents, based on participatory, consensus-based methodologies: the nominal group technique (NGT) and the Delphi method. The frame of reference was the set of Brazilian policies focusing on the issue of violence against children and adolescence. Experts from Brazil's five major regions participated in the study. The consensus produced two different analytical scenarios, with three and 20 indicators, respectively.
