Notes

2. Children in the child welfare system who have stability in their placementIncludes the percentage of children, ages 0-17, who are entering into the child welfare system for at least eight days, up to 12 months, and who have had two or fewer out-of-home placements during that time. Children Now analysis of Child Welfare Dynamic Report System data, April 2011 to March 2012 and April 2013 to March 2014, “Placement Stability (8 Days To 12 Months In Care)” (C4.1), California Department of Social Services and Center for Social Services Research at University of California, Berkeley, Child Welfare Data Analysis Bureau (July 2014). For Alpine, Mono, and Sierra counties, Children Now created a 3-year average for 2014 Scorecard data and race/ethnicity data (combining 2012, 2013, and 2014) and a 3-year average for 2012 Scorecard data (combining 2010, 2011, and 2012) 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 (*).
