After we posted our Tuesday Talking Point regarding the economic impact of child sexual abuse in the United States, I think it’s fair to say that people were shocked with what they heard and read. In the U.S. reported cases of child sexual abuse represent the second most expensive victim crime behind murder, costing the U.S. $35 Billion annually.
We wanted to bring those statistics to life and that’s why we’ve created our Economic Impact Calculator. It’s simple; enter the population of your community and click Find Out Costs and discover the estimated short term and long term costs of sexual abuse in your community.
