HOW BIG IS THE PROBLEM?

Child sexual abuse is a significant but preventable public health problem. Many children wait to report or never report child sexual abuse.

91% of chid sexual abuse is perpetrated by someone the child or child’s family knows.

Experiencing child sexual abuse is an adverse childhood experience (ACE) that can affect how a person thinks, acts, and feels over a lifetime, resulting in short- and long-term physical and mental/emotional health consequences.

The total lifetime economic burden of child sexual abuse in the United States in 2015 was estimated to be at least $9.3 billion. Although this is likely an underestimate of the true impact of the problem since child sexual abuse is underreported.
