Child and Family Services Review (CFSR) Indicator Tables


Several years after the CFRC began monitoring the Department’s performance on child safety and permanence in the B.H. monitoring report, the Children’s Bureau implemented a review process to monitor state child welfare programs' conformity with the requirements in titles IV-B (Child and Family Services) and IV-E (Federal Payments for Foster Care and Adoption Assistance) of the Social Security Act. These reviews, known as the Child and Family Services Reviews (CFSR), are used to assess performance on seven outcomes and seven systemic factors. There have been three rounds of CFSR to date: Round 1 (2001–2004), Round 2 (2007–2010), and Round 3 (2015–2018). As part of the CFSR process, the Children’s Bureau has developed statewide data indicators to determine if states are in substantial conformity with certain child welfare outcomes based on national standards. Statewide data indicators are aggregate measures that are calculated using administrative data available from the state’s submissions to the Adoption and Foster Care Analysis and Reporting System (AFCARS), the National Child Abuse and Neglect Data System (NCANDS), or an approved alternate source of safety- related data. The statewide data indicators have changed in each round of the CFSR. This year, the Department asked the CFRC if we could include the Round 3 CFSR statewide data indicators in the B.H. monitoring report.
