Description [Washington, D.C.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1974 
169 p. 

Presented is an analysis of 1172 reported cases of child abuse in the eight southeastern States in Region IV (Georgia, Alabama, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky, and Mississippi). Described in Chapter 1 is the methodology of the study including aims, sampling procedure, and data collection and processing. In Chapter 2, the reported cases are analyzed according to geographic distribution, changes in incidence and case status. Chapter 3 includes the statistics on characteristics of the injured children by characteristics such as age, sex, race, and birth order. Reported incidents are analyzed in chapter 4 according to characteristics such as place, time, assistance given, circumstances, types of injuries, seriousness of injuries, treatment, and official involvement and decisions. Chapter 5 presents statistics concerning the parents or parent substitutes of the abused children, and Chapter 6 covers statistics on the perpetrators. Summary, reflection, and conclusion are included in Chapter 7. A summary of the significant findings of the study is provided, some of which are the following: over 50% of the abused children were under 6 years of age; educational and occupational levels of the parents were low; females injured children more in the early morning and men in the evening; and perpetrators tended to injure children of their own sex more than children of the opposite sex.
