New Data Chart Tool Launched

A new tool for viewing data has just been launched on the CFRC website. The “Outcome Charts” tool—accessible within the website’s Data Center here—features a subset of our child welfare outcome indicators, along with indication rates, placement type breakdowns, and annual counts of children in and entering care. You can customize or “slice” the data however you like: Choose either line- or bar-graphs for the whole state as well as a variety of population subsets. Layer demographic (age, race, gender) and area (region, sub-region) series onto the charts to visualize change over time. Explore the Outcome Charts tool for yourself by clicking here, and feel free to let us know what you think by emailing its developer, Dan Phillips, at
