Study links joblessness to child abuse increase

GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) – Statistics in South Carolina seem to support research showing parallels between rising unemployment and child abuse. The Greenville News reported Monday that Boston University researchers examining 18 years of data found that for every 1 percent increase in unemployment, child mistreatment reports one year later increased by at least .5 per 1,000 children. South Carolina’s Department of Social Services investigated nearly 19,000 cases over the last fiscal year, an increase of almost 7 percent. The number of proven cases rose nearly 3 percent to nearly 7,000.





By the time you finish reading this, 15 children will have been abused; In the next five minutes, 30 more; Within the next hour, 360 more; And by tonight, close to 8,000+ children will have suffered from abuse, 5 of which will die. Child abuse has increased 134% since 1980 and is now considered a worldwide epidemic. The high jump in child abuse deaths and the shocking increase in statistics highlights the frightening lack of public knowledge.
