Summary

Households with previous screened-in reports are more likely to be screened-in again; this graph shows how much the screening rate increased. The screening rate is the rate at which public reports of concern for child safety made to Children's Administration are screened-in for a CPS investigation or assessed for receipt of other services.

Questions this graph can answer

  • How has the screening rate differed for households with prior screened-in reports?

See also

  • Report Rate, for the overall rate of reports.
  • Placement Rate, for the rate at which screened-in reports resulted in out-of-home placement.

Notes

All screened-in reports receive services; depending on the details of the case the service might be a CPS investigation, a CPS risk assessment, an alternative response such as Family Assessment Response (FAR) or Family Reconciliation Services (FRS).

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

The rate of screened-in reports with one prior screened-in report was calculated by dividing those households experiencing a second report in a given month by the number of households who had exactly one report prior to the start of the month, and so on.

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