Child Abuse and Neglect: National Maltreatment Data and State Statutes

All 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the U.S. Territories have child abuse and neglect reporting laws that mandate certain professionals and institutions to report suspected maltreatment to a child protective services (CPS) agency. Most states recognize four major types of maltreatment: neglect, physical abuse, psychological maltreatment, and sexual abuse.

Although any of the forms of child maltreatment may be found separately, they can occur in combination. This book provides data collected on child maltreatment from 2013; and discusses statutes identifying persons who are required to report suspected child maltreatment to an appropriate agency, such as child protective services, a law enforcement agency, or a State‟s toll-free child abuse reporting hotline.
