Definition: Percentage of child abuse and neglect reports, by age of child (e.g., in 2015, 10.2% of abuse and neglect reports in California concerned children ages 1-2).
Data Source: Webster, D., et al. California Child Welfare Indicators Project Reports, U.C. Berkeley Center for Social Services Research (Jun. 2016).
Footnote: A child is counted only once (per year, per county). Reports include substantiated, inconclusive, unfounded, and assessment-only referrals, as well as those "not yet determined." LNE (Low Number Event) refers to data that have been suppressed because there were fewer than 120 reports of child abuse and neglect.
