Neglect involves failure to provide for the physical and social needs of a female partner, elderly dependent, or child through lack of adequate food, shelter, protection, or other care. It is impossible to identify the extent of child abuse and neglect in this country, but estimates of physical abuse of children range from 50,000 to 100,000 cases annually in the United States; one estimate suggests that at least 14 percent of all American children are physically mistreated seriously enough each year to qualify as abused (Perrucci & Knudsen, 1990).
