Why This Indicator Matters
Definition and Source
A child abuse allegation is substantiated when it is determined that the victim is under the age of 18, a parent or caretaker has been identified as the perpetrator and/or identified as failing to protect the victim, and credible evidence exists to support the conclusion by the investigator that the child has been abused and/or neglected as defined by the New Mexico Children't Code. Types of child abuse allegations are physical abuse, sexual abuse, and physical neglect.
