New AIC Publication: New research reveals role of parents in producing child sexual abuse material (CSAM)

  • CSAM produced and distributed by parents and/or parental figures most often involved a male parent - 52 percent of cases involved biological fathers and 41 percent involved a stepfather, a parent’s partner or a foster father.
  • The victim’s biological mother was involved in 28 percent of cases.
  • Victims were predominately girls under nine years of age.
  • The study identified distinct patterns and scenarios of parental CSAM offending that can inform prevention, early intervention and improved responses to victims.


The report is available for free download on the AIC website:
