ZipRisk | A Child Maltreatment Risk Assessment

TexProtects' ZipRisk Project

TexProtects has analyzed ZIP code level data from the U.S. Census Bureau, Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, and the Texas Department of State Health Services to develop a comprehensive child abuse and neglect risk assessment and ranking for all Texas zipcodes through the use of substantiated child maltreatment, child abuse and neglect related fatalities, teen birth, substance abuse, and child poverty rates. This interactive tool is meant to be a resource to community providers, decision makers, advocates, and the public-at-large to demonstrate the quantifiable need for more targeted investments in child abuse and neglect prevention services in Texas and to bring about more data-driven policies.
