The interest in stydying child abuse and neglect has remarkably increased during the past two decades.

The present study is designed to investigate the relationship between demographic factors and personality characterisitcs of children who were abused and neglected. The sample consisted of 235 studntes (14 to 18 years, 131 girls, 104 boys) who were randomly selected. Subjects completed two questionnaires (a) The Child Abuse and Neglect Questionnaire, and (b) the Junior Eysenck personality Questionnaire. Then subjects were divided in two groups: abused and nonabused.

The results indicated that parents' age and birth order of children did not significantly relate to groups in the two sexes, but the parent's level of education, family income, and the number of children in the family significantly differed between abused and non abused groups in borth difference between abused and nonabused groups in both sexes was significant. On (P) scale, the difference btween the two groups of boys was significant, but it was significant, but it was not significant between the two groups of girls. The same trend appeared on (L) scale.
