Keep in mind that even though we can look at the age of child victims of maltreatment at date of report, age of the child is not the predominant risk factor for maltreatment. Child age, when isolated, may say as much about when children are most likely to come in to contact with mandated reporters. If I remember correctly, maternal age is a better predictor of child maltreatment than child age.
