The epidemiology of child abuse was investigated with data from the second national incidence and prevalence study of child abuse and neglect.
A statistical comparison of incidence income, and ethnicity were risk factors for both sexual abuse and physical abuse, but county metrostatus was not.
Gender was a risk factor for sexual abuse but not for physical abuse.
A logistic regression analysis showed that ethnicity, county metro-status, and a gender-by-income interaction distinguished sexual abuse from physical abuse.
