Notes

4. Children in the child welfare system who have had a medical exam in the last yearIncludes the percentage of foster children, ages 0-17, who have been in foster care for at least 31 days and who have had at least one medical exam prior to their next birthday. Children Now analysis of Child Welfare Dynamic Report System data, January to March 2011 and January to March 2013, “Timely Medical Exam” (5B, Part 1), California Department of Social Services and Center for Social Services Research at University of California, Berkeley, Child Welfare Data Analysis Bureau (August 2014). For Inyo, Modoc, Mono, and Sierra counties Children Now created a 3-year average for 2014 Scorecard data and race/ethnicity data (combining 2011, 2012, and 2013) and a 3-year average for 2012 Scorecard data (combining 2009, 2010, and 2011) 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 (*).
