It is estimated that as many as 40 million Americans (that’s 1 in 6!), experienced sexual victimization as children.
1 in 4 girls and 1 in 7 boys will be sexually victimized before age 18.
The most common ages of children when sexual abuse occurs are between 8 and 12.
Child sexual abuse often recurs and lasts an average of 1 to 4 years.
75% to 80% of all children assaulted or abused were victimized by someone they knew.
One of five rape victims is under age 12; 10% of all are under age 5.
Over 80% of offenders first offended by the age of 30 years.
