Quote—About half of the children who die from abuse or neglect are younger than 1, with two-thirds under the age of 3.—About 72 percent of deaths involve neglect and maltreatment, often in families "challenged by the stresses of poverty."—Children living in homes that include unrelated adults are more likely to die from inflicted injuries than children living with two biological parents.—A prior report to Child Protective Services (CPS), no matter how the report was eventually resolved, provided the strongest predictor of a child's risk for death before age 5, according to an analysis of California cases. The same study showed children with previous CPS reports had an almost six times greater risk of fatal injuries.—Despite the importance of the CPS connection to potentially fatal injuries, caseworkers only follow up on 60 percent of the reports they receive.
