ABSTRACT

This study aimed to examine the relationship between children’s perceived levels of neglect and abuse and community characteristics. For this, it analyzed data from the Korean Children & Youth Panel Survey and data collected from the Statistics Korea. Main findings are as follows. First, children who resided in the communities with higher report rates of child maltreatment perceived higher levels of neglect. Second, children who resided in the communities with higher rates of welfare recipients, lower residential mobility, or lower rates of those who responded they had someone to ask for help when they were sick tended to perceive higher levels of neglect. Third, while the perceived levels of abuse were explained by the child factors, those of neglect were explained by child, family, and community factors. Based on these findings, this study suggested the interventions on the community levels and future research directions
