It’s been awhile since I posted a pile of graphs, so here we go. Out-of-home care numbers are still rising. That’s probably not a good thing.
All is not equal in the types of placements. Relatives are still shouldering most of the burden for foster care.
Finally, which CBC is really the biggest? It has always depended on how you measure.
The numbers here are from DCF’s Child Welfare Trend Reports. DCF keeps their own visualizations at the Child Welfare Dashboard. If you see anything wrong, interesting, or that-I-missed, let me know. Have a great weekend!
