Average Monthly Number of Runaway Youth or Youth Missing from Placement
Posted on October 21, 2021 at 12:51 PM by Kansas Department of Administration
This is the average of the number of children in foster care that have runaway or are missing from placement. Children in foster care have suffered trauma and may leave a placement on their own or at the behest of another person. This is a risk to a child's safety and 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.
