In need of statistics

Dear Maggie:

Sorry, but I honestly have no idea who would have this information. I am sure that some state agency, maybe Child Support Enforcement, would have it. Let us know what you find out.

Hello! I am Maggie Gravelle, on behalf of Daymark Recovery Services in
central North Carolina. We are currently in the process of applying for a
grant through the North Carolina Department of Social Services, building
our capacity to provide community-based programs to support healthy
marriages and active fatherhood. In support of the need for such services
in our community, we are looking for statistics on child support payments
within our area. Would you be able to provide any of this information? It
would be greatly appreciated. We have not been able to find this
elsewhere. State-wide statistics are available, but we have not been able
to locate them on a county basis.

The counties of interest are as follows:

I am looking for county-based statistics on the amount of child support
owed (both paid and going unpaid) in each county, the amount of parents
currently court-ordered to supply payments, and any other information you
have that would be relevant.

If you do not have these statistics yourself, might you be able to direct
us to where we would find them?

Thank you!
Maggie Gravelle, MSW '07
