Tragically, child sexual abuse and molestation occurs frequently. Statistics about child sexual abuse and molestation may surprise you:

  • According to the Crimes Against Children Research Center, children are most vulnerable to sexual abuse between the ages of 7 and 13.
  • The U.S. Department of Justice reports that in nearly 93% of child sexual abuse cases, the child knows the person that commits the abuse.
  • More than 30 percent of sexual assaults on teenage victims occur outside of the residence of the victim, the offender, or another individual.
  • In 2010, more than 63,000 cases of child sexual abuse were reported. It is important to note that many victims of child sexual abuse do not report the abuse for many years, or in some cases, never report the abuse. (See our CPS location database to find where to report in your state)
  • 15% of sexual assault and rape victims are under age 12.
  • According to The Children’s Assessment Center, a lower socioeconomic status can increase the likelihood of child sexual abuse.
  • Children who live in rural areas are almost twice as likely to be identified as victims of child sexual abuse.
  • Children with disabilities are at a greater risk for child sexual abuse.
