Deaths of children through maltreatment, 1948–2014 (1 o 2)

This graph charts child deaths from maltreatment between 1948 and 2014. The trend is volatile (it frequently moves up and down sharply) due to the relatively small number of deaths. It is likely that causes of death were recorded differently at different times, so it is difficult to draw meaningful conclusions about trends in child deaths from maltreatment. However it is clear that the number of deaths did not increase greatly over this period.
