Percentage Increase of Total Child Support Collections Over Prior Year

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

This measures the percentage change resulting from a comparison of the most recent 12 months of child support collections to the same 12-month period in the previous year.  Child support reduces poverty among children and custodial parents and decreases reliance on public assistance.

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.
