Definitions: Substantiated abuse includes children a judge has found were abused (“founded”) and also includes children that Child Protective Services staff determine were abused based on medical evidence, the investigation, or an admission by the perpetrator. The number of substantiated cases of abuse and neglect is the number of children for whom child abuse has been founded.

Data Source: Pennsylvania Department of Human Services, Office of Children, Youth and Families.

Footnotes: The sum of the age groups will not total 'All Ages' due to those cases where age is unknown or the child was older than 17 years of age on the incident start date.
