    Chi-square analyses were used to determine age, gender, and racial differences in child abuse and neglect in children 0 to 7 years of age.

    Results

    No significant age differences were observed for physical abuse or for emotional abuse, and no racial differences were detected for any of the four types of abuse examined. (...)
