Description

During 2015–16, 162,175 (30.2 per 1,000) Australian children received child protection services (investigation, care and protection order and/or were in out-of-home care).

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children were seven times as likely as non-Indigenous children to have received child protection services.

This report also showed that children from geographically remote areas were more likely to be the subject of a substantiation, or be in out-of-home care than those from major cities.
