Notes

3. Adolescents in the child welfare system who are placed in family-like settingsIncludes the percentage of children in foster care, ages 12-17, who are placed in a family-like setting at any given point in time, as a percentage of all placements. Family-like settings include placement with kin, in a foster home, Foster Family Agency (FFA) or FFA certified home, in a court-specified home, with a guardian, in a trial home visit, or a pre-adoption placement. Group care, transitional housing, and shelters are not considered family-like settings. Adolescents residing in the following placement types were excluded from the analysis because it could not be determined if an adolescent was living in a family-like setting: Supervised Independent Living Placements (SILP), other, runaway, missing, and non-foster care placements. Children Now analysis of Child Welfare Dynamic Report System, April 2010-12 and April 2012-14, “”Point in Time/Children in Foster Care,” California Department of Social Services and UC Berkeley Center for Social Services Research, Child Welfare Data Analysis Bureau (July 2014). For Colusa, Inyo, Mariposa, Modoc, Mono, and Sierra counties, Children Now created a 3-year average for 2014 Scorecard data and race/ethnicity data (combining 2011-12, 2012-13, and 2013-14) and a 3-year average for 2012 Scorecard data (combining 2009-10, 2010-11, and 2011-12) in lieu of a low number event.

NA (Not Available)Data that are not available are noted as NA. The most frequent reasons for NAs include the unavailability of longitudinal data, fewer than 10 cases (low number events), and statistically unstable estimates.

*Data that are created from a 3-year average or a larger confidence interval are noted with an asterisk (*).
