Abstract

I am studying to see if there is a correlation between families on government assistance and child maltreatment. I am going to research studies published that incorporate factors that also play into child maltreatment. While there is not many studies involving households on government assistance there is research on income, single parent homes, as well as demographics regarding child maltreatment. The good part is is that these factors all tie in together when it comes to child maltreatment. Though the studies are not extensive and are a little redundant they all seem to have the same conclusion. I will run tests regarding families on SNAP and the correlations to child maltreatment.
