U.S. and FL child abuse and Neglect fatalities (2010 Statistics)

From 2001 to 2010, 30,859,000 child abuse reports were filed in the U.S.
FL was second only to Texas in the number of reported deaths due to abuse
The U.S. leads all industrialized nations, losing five children-per-day to abuse
80 percent of kids that die from abuse are under the age of four
