White, Helene Raskin; Widom, Cathy Spatz
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v27 n7 p841-53 Jul 2003
This study compared mortality data and causes of death in a sample of 908 abused and/or neglected individuals and 667 matched controls followed for 25 years into young adulthood. The study found no significant differences in rates of mortality for the two groups and victims of child abuse and neglect were not more likely to experience a violent death. (Contains references.)
