There were 1,668 young persons recorded on Child Protection Registers in Wales on 31 March 1995.

'Child Protection Register: Statistics for Wales, 1995' has been published by the Welsh Office. The registers record children who have been abused or who are considered to be at risk of future abuse and are currently the subject of an inter-agency plan to protect them.

There were 24.8 children registered per 10,000 population aged under 18, the rates being highest for children aged under one year. Cases where physical abuse was involved accounted for the greatest number of registrations - 44% of children on the register. Overall numbers on the registers wee four per cent higher than on 31 March 1994.

As with previous bulletins in this series, care should be taken in the interpretation of the statistics. They are not estimates of the number of children subject to abuse, as not every case is reported and many child abuse referrals are resolved without the need to enter the child on the register. Furthermore, some cases will be on a register because it was considered there was a likelihood of future abuse.

- Copies of the register are available from the Publications Unit, Statistical Directorate, Welsh Office, Cathays Park, Cardiff CF1 3NQ. Price £5. ISBN 0 7504 1525 8.
