Here is a report on child-abuse. What is not reported is the fact that poverty and living under oppressive conditions heighten the incidence of child abuse.

A recent study sought to quantify the extent of child abuse in the U.S. finding that overall 12.5% of children (or 1 in 8) experienced maltreatment before they reached eighteen years of age. The study, published in the journal JAMA Pediatrics, was led by researchers at Yale and examined cases between 2004 and 2011.
To determine the number of abuse cases, researchers used The National Child Abuse and Neglect Data System (NCANDS) Child File. The NCANDS file includes information on all US children with a confirmed report of maltreatment. Maltreatment was either direct abuse and/or neglect, and the study found that between 2004 and 2011, 5.7 million children were abused.
While 12.5% of children in the U.S. were found to have been abused, some minority children were abused at higher rates. 20.9% of black children, and 14.5% of Hispanic children were abused compared to 10.5 % of white children. Children classified as “Asian/Pacific Islander” were found to be abused at 3.8%. Read more...
