Point in Time/In Care

These reports include all children who have an open child welfare or probation supervised placement episode in the CWS/CMS system.

Note: As of the Quarter 4, 2018 extract, we revised our county assignment procedures for a number of reports to account for data changes in CWS/CMS. This resulted in changes in the number of children and youth reported as having a missing county, especially in early time periods (before approximately 2012) compared to previously published extracts. We are investigating additional modifications to these procedures.

Important note: Prior to mid-2017, it was not possible for Resource Family Approval (RFA) early implementing counties to accurately capture the number of children living in "Kin" placement types (now called "Relative/NREFM"). Early implementing counties were instructed to enter all new placements with resource families into the Child Welfare Services/Case Management System as "Foster" placement types, including those placed with relatives. To obtain accurate information regarding relative placements, reports should be filtered/restricted by "Relative" caregiver relationship type. Please note, non-related extended family members could not be identified for resource family homes at this time and were reflected as a "Nonrelative" caregiver relationship type.
