Researchers summarized the health, well-being, and services received by caregivers of the first wave of data collection from a nationally representative sample of children reported for maltreatment at birth to 17.5 years old.
The majority of caregivers were parents living in-home with their children. Many caregivers lived below the federal poverty level and approximately half were in very good or excellent health.
