Summary

This graph examines re-entry into out-of-home care. It shows the percentage of children who exited out-of-home care to a permanent outcome (reunification, adoption, or guardianship) but later re-entered out-of-home care.

Questions this graph can answer

  • From what type of permanency outcome have most children re-entered out-of-home care?

  • For how long after a permanency outcome are children at high risk of re-entering out-of-home care?

Notes

This measure uses cohort data based on the year children exit care. Recent cohorts (in the last 4 years) have less data available due to the shorter follow-up time.

If a child has a name change associated with an adoption, then it is not possible to link the pre-adoption record to a post-adoption re-entry. Thus the displayed re-entry rate following adoption is an underestimate of the true rate.
