Data Note(s)
  • This report provides an Unduplicated Count of Children in Out of Home Care (OHC) excluding Approved Relative and Non-Relative Care by Age and Case County
  • County is based on case county and includes "Other US County" and "Unknown" since both are values in FSFN case county. For this reason, the state total may not equal the sum of all counties.
  • Age is based on the earliest date of known age as of January 1 if the child was already in licensed OHC or the date of first licensed OHC placement if not in licensed OHC at the start of the year.
  • Changes in overall counts as compared to previous years may be due to changes in how placements are captured. "Other Placements" such as DJJ and Runaways are now included in the counts, whereas they were excluded in previous years.
  • The state total may be greater than the sum of the counties if any records had unknown counties.
  • Chart will display if there are at least three years of data.
  • Multi-year counts are a sum of the selected years, not an average.
  • Quartiles are calculated when data is available for at least 51 counties.
  • MOV - Measure of Variability: Probable range of values resulting from random fluctuations in the number of events. Not calculated when numerator is below 5 or denominator is below 20, or count or rate is suppressed. The MOV is useful for comparing rates to a goal or standard. For example, if the absolute difference between the county rate and the statewide rate is less than the MOV, the county rate is not significantly different from the statewide rate (alpha level = 0.05). When the absolute difference between the county rate and the statewide rate is greater than the MOV, the county rate is significantly different from the statewide rate. MOV should not be used to determine if the rates of two different counties, or the county rates for two different years, are statistically significantly different.
  • Denom - abbreviated for Denominator.
  • Population estimates are not available for persons whose county of residence is unknown. Given this, the denominator and associated rate are not available.
  • * - Indicates the county rate is statistically significantly different from the statewide rate.
