Child Abuse Statistics
Statistics Regarding Child Abuse and Neglect in Arizona and the U.S.
Statistics pertaining to child abuse can be difficult to find and may not be 100% accurate, as a large number of child abuse and neglect (CAN) instances go unreported. However, our goal at the Info Center is to keep the most up to date statistics regarding CAN from the most reliable sources.

A large portion of the statistics are about 2 years old, this is because one of the most reliable sources, The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Administration on Children, Youth and Families (ACYF) puts out a yearly report with statistics from the year 2 years prior for all 50 states. Currently, most of the statistics are for 2006, however in April 2009 the ACYF will come out with a report for 2007 numbers.
