Crimes Against Children General
Fact Sheet

 

Children and adolescents have among the highest rates of conventional crime victimization and, in addition, suffer from some crimes -- like sexual abuse and family abduction -- specific to childhood. Despite enormous publicity about crime and youth, however, all true statistics on juvenile victimization are rarely assembled in one place. These facts and statistics about crimes against children are compiled from a variety of sources.
