Report Shows Steady Decrease in Child Abuse and Neglect

December 17, 2010 (MMD Newswire) — The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Administration for Children and Families (ACF) today released its annual report on child abuse and neglect. “Child Maltreatment 2009” marks the 20th issuance of the report and shows a steady decrease in the number of victims who suffered maltreatment for the third consecutive year.

Data collected through the National Child Abuse and Neglect Data System, a voluntary data collection system, shows an estimated 763,000 children were victims of child abuse and neglect, at a rate of 10.1 per 1,000 children. Of those, 693,174 total victims were counted once, regardless of the number of reports of maltreatment. Data from states continue to indicate the greatest proportion of children suffered from neglect and that the 87,612 child victims younger than one year had the highest rate of victimization at 20.6 per 1,000 children in the population of the same age.

“We are pleased to see a steady decrease in the rate of abused and neglected children, however we also know even one child abused is one too many,” said David A. Hansell, HHS acting assistant secretary for children and families. “The more we support and implement evidenced-based programs and services to prevent child maltreatment and promote healthy families and communities, the sooner we can ensure children are able to have the safe, happy and healthy childhood they deserve.”
