The purpose of the present investigation was to extend the Gresham et al.,(1993) study on the frequency of reporting data on treatment integrity (TI) in research involving children published in the Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis. The Gresham et al. study began in 1980 and ended in 1990; the present began in 1991 and ended in 2019. The results indicate that the percentage of articles with TI data has increased over the years from just 16% in 1980-1990 overall to roughly 50% today. Two additional variables were included in the analysis, the setting or location in which the research was conducted, and the person responsible for implementing treatment. Schools were identified as the setting in which TI data were most frequently obtained, and researchers were identified as the people from whom TI data were most frequently obtained. The implications of the results of the present study are discussed in the context of the significance of collecting, analyzing, and reporting TI data in the field of applied behavior analysis.
