Data Provided By

Definitions: Number of children in reports to the Department for Community Based Services for suspected neglect, physical abuse or sexual abuse that met criteria as a report of abuse/neglect for the reported year.

Data Source: Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services, Department for Community Based Services.

Footnotes: This data is an unduplicated count, meaning a child is only counted once even if he/she were involved in multiple reports to DCBS throughout the year. Due to a change in the source's data collection system, it is recommended that users compare a given geographies' data starting with CY 2014 to subsequent years, but refrain from comparing the referenced time period and beyond to prior years.
