Report Intro/Brief:
“Child Maltreatment 2016 presents national data about child abuse and neglect known to child protective services (CPS) agencies in the United States during federal fiscal year (FFY) 2016. The data were collected and analyzed through the National Child Abuse and Neglect Data System (NCANDS), which is an initiative of the Children’s Bureau. Because NCANDS contains all screened-in referrals to CPS agencies that received a disposition and those that received an alternative response, these data represent the universe of known child maltreatment cases for FFY 2016.”
