Questions this graph can answer

- Which races/ethnicities had the highest rates of investigation in a given year?
Investigations & Assessments (Count), for the number of investigations and assessments.
- Households with Children Re-Reported, for the rate at which households with investigations/assessments were later reported again.
All households with a screened-in report of concerns for child safety receive a CPS investigation or are assessed for other services, so the rate of investigations and assessments is a population-based rate of screened-in reports.
