Child Abuse and Neglect Fatalities 2013: Statistics and Interventions
Child Maltreatment 2013: Summary of Key Findings - Child Welfare
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF CHILD MALTREATMENT? There are four types of child maltreatment legally recognized by all states: Physical Abuse Sexual Abuse Emotional Abuse Neglect. Other types of maltreatment recognized by some states and experts include Abandonment and Trafficking. In 2005, 49.7 percent of children who were maltreated were white, 23.1 percent were African American, and 17.4 percent were Hispanic. American Indians and Alaska Natives accounted for 1.2 percent of victims, and Asian-Pacific Islanders accounted for less than 1 percent of victims (USDHHS, 2007). As of September 30, 2004, 517,000 children lived in foster homes because they could not safely remain in their own homes. In 2005, one-fifth (21.7 percent) of victims or 317,000 children were removed from their homes as a result of child maltreatment investigations. Most CPS agencies data collection on maltreatment cases does not involve questions regarding a childs disability. Children with disabilities are less likely to be believed or viewed as credible when they attempt to report.
Of these referrals, 899,000 children were confirmed to be victims of abuse or neglect (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 2007). That means about 12 out of every 1,000 children up to age 18 in the United States were found to be victims of maltreatment in 2005 (USDHHS, 2007).
