340 children were interviewed at the Children's Home Child Advocacy Center 
in 2016.

   83% of the children were under the age of 13, with 32% being under 6.

   76% were interviewed due to reported sexual abuse.

A stranger was the alleged perpetrator in only four of the cases...the perpetrator is almost always someone the family and the child know.

"Many child sexual abuse victims never disclose their abuse to anyone. Less than 12% of child sexual abuse is reported to the police." [ Hanson, R. F., Resnick, H. S., Saunders, B. E., Kilpatrick, D. G., & Best, C. (1999). Factors related to the reporting of childhood rape. Child Abuse and Neglect, 23, 559569. doi:10.1016/S0145-2134(99)00028-9. http://www.nsvrc.org/sites/default/files/publications_nsvrc_factsheet_media-packet_statistics-about-sexual-violence_0.pd ]
