101404: Male Perpetrators of Child Maltreatment

Findings from NCANDS

About the Course:

Using case-level data from the National Child Abuse and Neglect System (NCANDS) for 2002, analyses of the characteristics of male perpetrators of maltreatment were conducted. The study used as the basis of this course utilized an 18-State data set of 192,392 perpetrators identified by the child protective services system during 2002. The relationship of the perpetrators to the child victims, as well as whether the perpetrator acted alone or with another person, was considered along with demographic characteristics of both perpetrators and victims, and circumstances of the maltreatment. Research questions included: 1) What are the characteristics of male perpetrators of child maltreatment? and 2) What specific patterns of child maltreatment are associated with male perpetrators? References and statistical charts are included.
