Summary

This graph shows the rate at which screened-in reports---reports that receive an investigation or other service---led to an out-of-home placement, and how this varies with prior system contact.

Questions this graph can answer

Notes

The rate of placements with no (zero) prior placements is calculated by dividing the number of households with a first placement in a given month by the number of households with screened-in reports who had no prior placements at the start of the month.

The rate of placements with one prior placement is calculated by dividing the number of households with a second placement in a given month by the number of households with screened-in reports who had one prior placement at the start of the month, and so on.

A household is considered to have had a placement if one or more children in the household entered out-of-home care.

Additional reports were only counted if there had been more than 48 hours since the previous report about the same household.
