Research suggests children from non-White and Hispanic/Latinx communities are at higher risk for child maltreatment. This study identified states where children from specific non-White communities were overrepresented in child protective services reports for child physical, sexual, and emotional/psychological abuse. The authors found disparities for children from non-White communities in many states, especially for Black communities. Results from their exploratory mapping provide insight into how preventive resources might be differentially allocated to non-White communities.
