Confirmed victims of child abuse (Kids Count data center)

Number and rate per 1,000 of children ages 0-17 confirmed as victims of child abuse. Note: When a child is identified as a confirmed victim, it does not mean that the child will receive ongoing services from DFPS. The decision about whether to provide the family ongoing services or to remove the child into DFPS custody is based on an assessment of whether there is an ongoing risk to the child.

Understanding the color Range

Each Health Indicator includes five-color range indexes. The color range index compares all counties in the state that have the same indicator in the same timeframe. It then calculates where the selected county falls in that range and displays the color that best reflects how the county is doing in comparison to the other counties in the filtered group. The range displays the highest and lowest county values within the state that have the same indicator for the same measurement period.

Current county values will be compared to State and National values if they are available.

Green and red arrows indicate that the county value is better or worse than the state or national value. The arrows will change directions and colors based on which end of the range is positive.
This icon simply means that the county value is equal to the state or national value.
Some indicators display blue, which means the data is not meant for health-status comparison, but is intended simply to provide information.
If history data is available the trend icon will point up or down based on its relationship to the last county value.
