This study aimed to characterize the sociodemographic aspects related to child violence in the city of Goiânia-GO and to verify the spatial distribution and temporal tendency in relation to the differences in the number of notifications of child violence. This is a descriptive-analytical study, based on the notifications of violence available in the Notifiable Diseases Information System (SINAN NET), against children aged 0 to 11 years, 11 months and 29 days, which occurred in the municipality of Goiânia/Goiás, from 2010 to 2021. The results pointed to the higher prevalence of reports of violence by negligence. In relations with the violence studied, children aged 1 to 3 years, the most affected, female, the main place of occurrence is the victim's residence and the peripheral regions of the municipality of Goiânia-GO were more sensitive to child violence.
