The cost of child abuse in Australia

5 Dec 2008
Description

The Australian Childhood Foundation and Child Abuse Prevention Research Australia at Monash University commissioned Access Economics and collaborated with them to estimate the cost of child abuse (physical, sexual and emotional abuse, neglect and being forced to live with family violence). Two different types of costs were calculated using two separate approaches. The calculations made throughout the report have been chosen specifically to be inherently conservative in order to ensure that final results are not inflated or disputable.
