The review aimed to investigate two central issues.
1. To what extent is there evidence that poverty increases the amount of child abuse and neglect (CAN), and/or affects the nature of child abuse and neglect? How does this occur, how large are these effects and to whom do they apply?
2. To what extent is there evidence that CAN increases poverty later in life, how large are these effects and to whom do they apply?
Within these two issues evidence about equality and diversity, and cost were considered throughout.
