Cost of Child Abuse in the United States

The estimated annual cost of child abuse and neglect in the United States for 2011 is $124 BILLION

Family Structure Correlation

Single parent households were at higher risk of abuse

  • 87% greater risk of being harmed by neglect
  • 77% greater risk of being harmed by physical abuse
  • 74% greater risk of being harmed by emotional abuse
  • 220% (or more than three times) greater risk of being educationally neglected
  • 80% greater risk of suffering serious injury or harm from abuse or neglect
  • 90% greater risk of receiving moderate injury or harm as a result of child maltreatment
  • 120% (or more than two times) greater risk of being endangered by some type of child abuse or neglect.
  • Among children in single-parent households, those living with only their fathers were approximately one and two-thirds times more likely to be physically abused than those living with only their mothers.

 

Income Related Child Abuse Statistics

Family income was significantly related to incidence rates in nearly every category of maltreatment. Compared to children whose families earned $30,000 per year or more, those in families with annual incomes below $15,000 per year were:

  • more than 22 times more likely to experience some form of maltreatment under the Harm Standard and over 25 times more likely to suffer maltreatment of some type using the Endangerment Standard;
  • 15 times more likely to be harmed by abuse
  • 44 times more likely to be neglected
  • 16 times more likely to be a victim of physical
  • 18 times more likely to be sexually abused
  • 29 times more likely to be emotionally abused
  • 56 times more likely to be educationally neglected
  • 60 times more likely to die from maltreatment of some type
  • 31 times more likely to be considered endangered, although not yet injured, by some type of abusive or neglectful treatment.

*Note that there are a number of problems associated with poverty that may contribute to child maltreatment: more transient residence, poorer education, and higher rates of substance abuse and emotional disorders. Moreover, families at the lower socioeconomic levels have less adequate social support systems to assist parents in their child care responsibilities.

RECIDIVISM RATES:

Overall, follow-up studies typically find sexual recidivism rates of 10%-15% after five years, 20% after 10 years, and 30%-40% after 20 years ( Hanson, Morton, & Harris, 2003). Researchers in a 1999 study (Ahlmeyer, English, and Simons) found that, through polygraph examinations, the number offenders who “crossed over” age groups of victims is extremely high. The study revealed that before polygraph examinations, 6 percent of a sample of incarcerated sex offenders had both child and adult victims, compared to 71 percent after polygraph exams. Thus, caution must be taken in placing sex offenders in exclusive categories. Marshall and Barbaree (1990) found in their review of studies that the recidivism rate for specific types of offenders varied:

  • Incest offenders ranged between 4 and 10 percent.
  • Rapists ranged between 7 and 35 percent.
  • Child molesters with female victims ranged between 10 and 29 percent.
  • Child molesters with male victims ranged between 13 and 40 percent.

The vast majority of sex offenses are never reported. For instance, the National Women’s Study surveyed a representative sample of over 4,000 adult women in the United States . Three hundred forty-one (8.5%) of these women were victims of at least one rape prior to the age of 18; however, only 11.9% of these women reported the rape to authorities (Hanson et al., 1990). And it must be remembered, of the few offenses reported, an even smaller number result in convictions.

SCARY FACTS SHEET

* There are an estimated 77 million kids online today.

* There are over 40,000 chat rooms where children can meet child predators.

* Pedophiles lure kids in, with games and establish relationships with them on-line, then arrange to meet.

* Chat rooms and instant/private messages are two main tools pedophiles use to contact children on-line. Online child pornography/child sex exploitation is the most significant crime problem confronting the FBI that involves crimes against children.

* There is a 100% chance of a child meeting a predator in a chat room. (FBI 2002)

Children are reported missing into the FBI computer program system at the rate of:
* 825,600 kids per year

Characteristics of Child Sexual Abuse Victims

U. S. Department of Justice Bureau of Justice Statistics has combined a study of characteristics among those child victims of convicted sex offenders and child molesters. These statistics are based on the reports of offenders in the Survey of Inmates of State Correctional Facilities, and include the following:

— 3 out of 4 children who were victimized were female.
— 1/3 of the convicted offenders had committed a crime against their own child.
— About 50% of the convicted offenders had a relationship with the child, either through friends or family.
— Only 1 out of 7 inmates reported that their child victim was a stranger.
— 4 out of 10 child victims suffered forcible rape or another injury from child molesters.

Characteristics of Child Sex Offenders

The following statistics were taken from the U.S. Department of Justice Bureau of Justice Statistics’ Survey of Inmates of State Correctional Facilities concerning the characteristics of offenders who commit violent crimes against children. They include the following:

— More than 3/4 of violent crimes against children occurred in the offender’s home.
— More than 50% of the negligent manslaughter offenders’ crimes occurred in a public place, such as a park or a street.
— 8 out of 10 crimes by convicted sex offenders/molesters in their own homes were forcible rapes or sexual assaults.
— Only 1 in 7 offenders reported using a weapon to perpetrate the offense against the child victim.
— 40% of the child victims of convicted offenders suffered forcible, rape, injury or death as a result of the crime.

Characteristics of Offenders Who Victimize Children

According to the Survey of Inmates of State Correctional Facilities by the U.S. Department of Justice Bureau of Justice Statistics, the following statistics have been recorded concerning the characteristics of offenders who violate and assault children.

— Those inmates who were convicted of committing violent acts against children were more like to have been white, a percentage of nearly 70%, than any other race.
— White inmates were nearly 3x’s more likely to have victimized a child than black inmates.
— About 1 in every 7 Hispanic convicts had been convicted for a crime against a child.
— Nearly 2/3 of convicted child molesters and/or offenders were or had been married.
— Child molesters and offenders were more likely to have grown up in a two parent home.
— Approximately 22% of child offenders reported having been sexually abused as a child.

Pedophiles Becoming An Epidemic

According to Dr. Herbert Wagemaker, a renowned psychiatrist and author, pedophilia appears to run in families. In fact, statistics show that boys who suffered molestation often grow up and commit the same type of crime. The following statistics might surprise some readers:

— 4% of today’s population suffers from a sexual orientation focused on children
— In 1999, more than 93,000 children were reported/confirmed as being sexually abused.
— Of those 93,000 cases, 50% of them were committed by the parents, and another 18% were relatives.

Statistics on Child Molestation

The statistics say that one out of every three to four girls has been sexually assaulted by the age of 18. One boy out of every six will be abused by the age of 18. Although we have some reports and convictions to base these statistics on, they are actually not accurate. So many cases of child molestation go unreported each year, so we really cannot estimate the real numbers. The FBI reports that the National Institute for Mental Health found that only 1% to 10% of victims ever tell that they were abused. Boys report far less than girls.

  • The average child molester will molest fifty girls before being caught and convicted.
  • A child molester that seeks out boys will molest 150 boys before being caught and convicted and he will commit at least 280 sexual crimes in his lifetime.
  • The standard pedophile will commit 117 sexual crimes in their lifetime.
  • Most sexual abuse happens between the ages of 7 and 13.
  • There are over 491,720 registered sex offenders in the United States.
  • 80,000 to 100,000 of the above offenders are missing.
  • Molesters known by the family or victim are the most common abusers. The Acquaintance Molester accounts for 70-90% of reported cases.

WHO ARE THE PERPETRATORS?

  • 79.2% of fatalities were caused by parents, acting alone or with another
  • 29.2% of fatalities were perpetrated by the mother acting alone
  • 17.1% of fatalities were perpetrated by the father acting alone
  • 8.3% of fatalities were of unknown perpetrator
  • 53.6% of all unique perpetrators are women
  • 45.2% of all unique perpetrators are men
  • 84.2% of all unique perpetrators are between the ages of 20 and 49 years.

Statistics & Research

The Children’s Bureau provides State and national data on adoption and foster care, child abuse and neglect, and child welfare. The Children’s Bureau also funds research in collaboration with other organizations.

Adoption and Foster Care Statistics

The Adoption and Foster Care Analysis and Reporting System (AFCARS) collects case level information on all children in foster care for whom State child welfare agencies have responsibility for placement, care or supervision, and on children who are adopted under the auspices of the State’s public child welfare agency. See Federal and State Reporting Systems for more information.

The difference among Preliminary, Interim, and Final AFCARS Reports:

    • Preliminary reports of AFCARS data include data received by September 30 for the report period ending March 31 and by March 31 for the report period ending September 30. This generally encompasses the required data submissions and submission of corrected data by States to avoid possible financial penalties.
    • Interim reports of AFCARS data include subsequent submissions of data made by States to improve the quality of data used to calculate awards for the Adoption Incentive Program, the Children’s Bureau’s Annual Report to Congress, and/or data utilized in the Child and Family Services Review or for other purposes. These are generally the data officially reported in the Children’s Bureau’s Annual Report to the Congress.
    • Final reports are issued when it appears that States have resubmitted data to the point that outcomes no longer can be improved. These reports may be issued 3 or more years after the year of interest.
  • AFCARS Assessment Reviews – Evaluate the ability of a State’s automated information system to gather, extract and submit the correct AFCARS data accurately.

THE CHILDREN’S WALL OF TEARS” — Child Abuse Memorial

The Children’s Wall of Tears  is an official 501c3 non-profit organization that has attempted, and succeeded, in an unprecedented act!!! They are tracking and recording each and every child that is senselessly killed at the hands of a care giver in America and Internationally. Each child is memorialized on a physical wall. This electronic wall allows viewers to scroll through the name of each and every child who has died because of child abuse and/or neglect.

    It’s sickening how many pedophiles and sexual predators are in chat rooms trying to entice kids. Parents, Intellispy sells a computer activity tracking software that shows everything typed on a keyboard or viewed on the computer. Including emails, chat rooms, websites and social media sites. This is all done in a stealth manner so your children will never know their being protected. You can also block any sites you deem inappropriate.
