“The federal government has determined that the good that can be gained from disclosing information about child abuse or neglect deaths or near deaths will exceed any potential harm or embarrassment that some individuals might experience as a result,” the Institute writes.

California got C in the study’s ranking for making the information somewhat harder to find than it should have. Check out the report and see how your state ranks.
