This report revealed that support services for victims of child sexual assault in Cook County are spread too thin. In Chicago, the analysis revealed a city very much divided by race and poverty. Of the 13,970 children under 18 who wer victimized by sex offenses in the 1990's, nearly nine out of every ten are minorities. The city's poorest communities suffer the highest rates of assault and abuse of children under 18.
