Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v24 n5 p689-700 May 2000

Differences were found between groups in relation to child characteristics (age, sex, and ethnicity), offender characteristics (age, sex, and relationship to child), and case characteristics (disclosure and injury to the child).
