  1. dr discounted rate
  2. a Estimated based on literature review, simple size weighted average prevalence
  3. b Estimated based on the number of consultation cases disposed about child abuse at child guidance centres. Probable estimate of abuse death was assumed about 8 times (confirmed AHT cases/possible cases = 8) of the costs of conservative estimate
