Hidden in Plain Sight: A Statistical Analysis of Violence against Children

United Nations Children's Fund Unicef

Working Papers from eSocialSciences

Abstract: The report sheds light on the prevalence of different forms of violence against children, with global figures and data from 190 countries. Where relevant, data are disaggregated by age and sex, to provide insights into risk and protective factors. Interpersonal violence in all its forms has a grave effect on children: Violence undermines children’s future potential; damages their physical, psychological and emotional well-being; and in many cases, ends their lives.
