CHILD ABUSE, SEXUAL ABUSE AND NEGLECT*
The estimated annual cost of child abuse and neglect is $103.8 billion based on data drawn from sources in 2007.
Although the economic costs associated with child abuse and neglect are substantial, it is essential to recognize that it is impossible to calculate the impact of pain, suffering, and reduced quality of life that victims of child abuse and neglect experience. These losses though difficult to quantify in monetary terms, are real and should not be overlooked, in fact, may represent the largest cost component of violence against children when allocating resources.
