Notes

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.
