Children Abused and Neglected
Children for whom a report of child abuse or neglect was substantiated by a county child protection worker. Substantiated abuse means that the county has conducted an assessment in response to a report and found that maltreatment occurred. This is a unique count of children, even though the same child may have been the subject of multiple reports.
The rate is the number of these children (for whom a report of child abuse or neglect was substantiated by a county child protection worker) divided by the estimated total number of children and multiplied by 1,000.
Data Source: Minnesota Department of Human Services, Minnesota's Child Welfare Report (annual).
Number/rate listed under Faribault County and Martin County is a combined figured representing the sum of cases in both counties. Number/rate listed under Lincoln, Lyon and Murray Counties is a combined figure representing the sum of cases in all three counties.
Due to implementation of Family Assessment Response (FAR, previously Alternative Response) rates prior to 2001 are not comparable to more recent data. FAR was implemented in all Minnesota counties by 2005. For more information about FAR, see p. 11 in "Seven Basic Needs: Minnesota KIDS COUNT Data Book 2007" at http://www.cdf-mn.org/PDF/KidsCountData_07/KIDSCOUNT_07_FINAL.pdf
Children's Defense Fund - Minnesota
Established in 1985, Children’s Defense Fund-Minnesota (CDF-MN) is the only policy organization in Minnesota to focus solely on the needs of children. CDF–MN targets all Minnesota children, particularly children being raised in low-income households who suffer greater barriers to full participation in society as a result of being born into poverty. CDF–MN pays particular attention to the needs of our most vulnerable children — children of color, children from low-income families and children with disabilities. To achieve its goals, CDF-MN does advocacy, research, outreach and youth development.Learn More
