CHILDREN IN SUBSTANTIATED INVESTIGATIONS OF ABUSE & NEGLECT

DCBS investigates all intakes meeting acceptance criteria and substantiates an investigation if evidence proves that it is more likely than not that abuse, neglect, or dependency was committed. Children are much more likely to be neglected than to be physically or sexually abused (see chart below).

Data source and notes: Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services, Department for Community Based Services. Data as of March 2021. Data portrays an unduplicated count of children determined by DCBS to be victims of abuse, neglect, or dependency.
