Statewide, 4,203 children were abused - nearly half of them sexually - over a one-year period, according to the agency's 2015 Annual Child Protective Services Report. In total, 34 child deaths were confirmed as having been related to abuse.

State officials logged 40,590 cases of suspected reports, an increase of 11,317 from 2014. The substantiation rate (the percentage of reports in which abuse was confirmed) dropped from 11.4 percent to 10.4 percent.
