The qualitative dataset consists of interviews with social workers in Tampere, Finland who make assessments of the need for child protection services.

The interviews contain three vignettes relating to child protection services that the interviewees read at the beginning of the interview. Themes of the vignettes included court proceedings in the case of a dysfunctional breakup, parental alienation and excessive use of alcohol, and uneven conditions between parents. The interviewees were asked questions regarding the vignettes and how well they portrayed reality.

Background information included educational background and number of years working in child protection.

The dataset is only available in Finnish.
