The American Professional Society on the Abuse of Children suggests corporal punishment increases the risk of abuse.
NCANDS identifies three main risk factors, including caregiver drug and alcohol abuse and domestic violence. One study published in found that among impoverished families, children with depressed caregivers were twice as likely to suffer physical neglect compared with those whose caregivers were not depressed.
Many abuse fatalities likely were preceded by a history of maltreatment.
Research on the link between child maltreatment and death finds that “children with a prior allegation of maltreatment died from intentional injuries at a rate that was 5.9 times greater than unreported children.” The National Incidence Study of Child Abuse and Neglect (NIS) also collects data from CPS along with “sentinel” agencies such as schools and health and law enforcement organizations.
