Average Monthly Number of Foster Care Children Staying Overnight in Provider Offices

Posted on October 21, 2021 at 12:51 PM by Kansas Department of Administration

This measures the average number of children who have stayed overnight in a foster care provider office each month during the fiscal year.  Children entering foster care or disrupting from placements should be placed into a new suitable placement without the need to spend overnights in offices.  This is critical to a child's well-being.

In some cases, quarterly data has been annualized to provide a better comparison to prior fiscal years.  Generally, measures that use percentages have been annualized.  This prevents distortions in the quarterly data that may occur because of smaller populations sizes.  Measures that show the numbers of incidents, activities or individuals reflect actual numbers for the quarter.  This allows users to see progress from one quarter to the next towards identified goals.
