The individuals of interest within this study were children aged 3-8 years with severe antisocial behaviour as a persistent problem. The abstract for this paper can be found here.

The CSRI was completed by the main carer of the child, and can be found here.

The first section covers demographics. In this instance they were collected as part of the CSRI; however, in many cases these are collected separately.

Under ‘employment and income’, which refers to the main carer, the carer is asked a number of questions which may assist with calculating an estimate cost of lost employment due to caring. In particular, question 14c asks for monthly wage. Other CSRIs (that are administered in the form of an interview instead) avoid asking for wage or salary information due to this being a sensitive question for a number of individuals, and typically result in a lower response rate. Instead, they request a job description and hours of employment lost- and refer to average wage data by job category to calculate income estimates instead.

The CSRI also has a section (‘school support or special school’) which is tailored entirely towards capturing service receipt related to children. Within the final section (health service use), question 27 is tailored towards collecting children’s data; however, the other questions are typically also asked within CSRIs aiming to capture data on adults. Since the CSRI covers a broad range of services that many different people would receive, as shown here tailoring a CSRI to a population group typically involves adding specific services to the pre-existing list as opposed to removing questions.
