America’s children suffer from a hidden epidemic. Every year over 3 million children are victims of violence and neglect, and those are only the ones that are reported. National statistics from 2012 showed increases in some forms of child maltreatment for the first time in many years. While overall substantiated child maltreatment was flat from 2011 to 2012, there was a 2% rise in sexual abuse and a 5% rise in physical abuse. Neglect declined 3% but child maltreatment fatalities rose 4% from 1,557 to 1,620.
Because this epidemic is so under-reported, the actual number of children being harmed is 3 times greater. Approximately 3.3 million reports and allegations were made involving an estimated 6 million children in 2009. Every ten seconds, violence and neglect against children is reported. Almost five children die every day as a result of violence and neglect. Nearly 600,000 children live in foster care. Almost 1.8 million are abducted. The Center for Disease Control estimates the cost of child abuse for a lifetime is $124 Billion. Read more about child violence and abuse in the U.S. here.
