of data for 74 dioceses.
See the Dallas Morning News database entry on Archbishop
Jerome Hanus. The June 2002 database examined the records of bishops
and identified those who had allowed accused priests to continue working
or had otherwise protected priests accused of sexual abuse. The database
is relevant to the bishops' "Nature and Scope" study because
the bishops who prepared the surveys for the study are in many cases responsible
for the "scope" of the problem.
