ALLEGED VICTIMS. The number of alleged victims in family reports of suspected abuse/neglect. A family report can contain multiple alleged child victims and for statistical purposes all alleged victims are counted.

INDICATED VICTIMS. An investigation of suspected child abuse/neglect has revealed credible evidence that the victim was abused and/or neglected.

PROTECTIVE CUSTODIES. The number of alleged child victims in abuse/neglect reports where the child was taken into temporary protective custody.

ALLEGED SEXUAL ABUSE. The number of alleged child victims in abuse/neglect reports where the alleged victim is reported for at least one allegation of sexual abuse.

INDICATED SEXUAL ABUSE. The number of alleged child victims in abuse/neglect reports where the victim had at least one indicated allegation of sexual abuse.

The above referenced data items are duplicative counts, because a family or child may be reported to the Department more than once during any reporting period.
