Percentage of Children Who Reached Permanency Within 12 Months of Entering Foster Care

Posted on 10/21/2021 at 12:51 PM by Kansas Department of Administration

This measures the number of children who have been discharged to a permanent home within 12 months of their entry into foster care as a percent of all children placed in foster care less than 12 months.  Timeliness of achieving permanency for children in foster care is critical to a child's well-being.

Graphs show the Percentage of Children Who Reached Permanency Within 12 Months of Entering Foster Care 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.
