Notes

5. Children in the child welfare system who exit to permanency within three yearsIncludes a six-month cohort measure of the percentage of children, ages 0-17, who have been in care for at least eight days, are entering foster care for the first time and are not still in the foster care system within 36 months of their first entry. Children Now analysis of Child Welfare Dynamic Report System, October 2008 to March 2009 and October 2010 to March 2011, “First Entries at 3 Years: Still In Care” (C1.3), California Department of Social Services and UC Berkeley Center for Social Services Research, Child Welfare Data Analysis Bureau (July 2014). For Inyo, Lassen, Modoc, Mono, Plumas, and Sierra counties Children Now created a 3-year average for 2014 Scorecard data and race/ethnicity data (combining 2008-09, 2009-10, and 2010-11) and a 3-year average for 2012 Scorecard data (combining 2006-07, 2007-08, and 2008-09) 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 (*).
