This measures the number of children who had two or fewer placements as a percent of all children in foster care less than 12 months.  DCF is responsible for stable placements which are critical to the well being of children in foster care.

Graphs show the Percentage of Children in Out-of-Home Placements Less Than 12 Months with Two or Fewer Placements for FY13 through FY17 and FY18 by Quarter

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.
