This graph shows the rate at which screened-in reports---reports that receive an investigation or other service---led to an out-of-home placement, and how this varies with prior system contact.
Questions this graph can answer
- For a household with a new screened-in report, how has the risk of placement change based on a history of prior placements?
Screening Rate, for the rate at which reports were screened-in for investigation or other services.
- Out-of-Home Entries (Rates), for the population-based rate of placements.
The rate of placements with no (zero) prior placements is calculated by dividing the number of households with a first placement in a given month by the number of households with screened-in reports who had no prior placements at the start of the month.
The rate of placements with one prior placement is calculated by dividing the number of households with a second placement in a given month by the number of households with screened-in reports who had one prior placement at the start of the month, and so on.
A household is considered to have had a placement if one or more children in the household entered out-of-home care.
Additional reports were only counted if there had been more than 48 hours since the previous report about the same household.
