The new Child Abuse and Neglect: A Look at the States, 1999 CWLA Stat Book, contains the most recent data to date on vulnerable children and families in the child welfare system, including extensive details on needy children that have been unknown previously. This broad reference covers child abuse and neglect, child fatalities, children living in out-of-home care, adoption, the financing of child welfare services, and risk factors for abuse. It has even more specifics than in the past on race and ethnicity, gender, and ages of abused and neglected children-compelling data unavailable anywhere else.

This Stat Book documents differences among states; trends across the United States; and includes international comparisons with countries in Europe and Asia. The Stat Book provides a baseline for measuring differences in rates per 1,000 children in each state shown in quick, easy-to-read charts.

Much of the data stem from the 1996 CWLA State Agency Survey, which captured previously uncatalogued and unpublished data from the 50 states, along with important data from numerous national sources.
