Summary

This graph examines the rate of placement moves for children in out-home-care based on their length of stay in out-of-home care and by placement move type. It can be interpeted as the probability that a child changed placement on a given day in care (if divided by 100,000).

Questions this graph can answer

  • How has the length of time children spend in out-of-home care been related to the rate of placement moves?

  • How has the rate of placement moves changed over time?

Notes

Rates have been calculated per 100,000 care-days. A care-day is one day that a child spends in out-of-home care. Fourteen care-days could either be two weeks that one child spent in out-of-home care, or 1 day that 14 children spent in out-of-home care.

Moves from one living situation to another are counted for children placed in out-of-home care. The initial placement into out-of-home care, return home and placement in another permanent home are not considered moves. Temporary stays lasting less than seven days, such as weekend respite or time in a hospital, or placement in a 'non-child welfare placement,' such as a juvenile detention center, are not counted as placement moves
