Outcome Indicator Tables


As part of our ongoing monitoring responsibility under the B.H. consent decree, the Children and Family Research Center (CFRC) has developed a set of child welfare outcome indicators that measure child safety, child and family well-being, and permanency of family relations. The annual B.H. monitoring report compiles performance data for the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS), compares this year’s performance data with past years’, and includes breakdowns by region and by child age, race, and gender.


Select an indicator from the list below. For each indicator you can select the population of interest: all children in Illinois or children in a specific region, subregion or county. Results can also be sorted by child age, race, and gender. For indicators marked with an asterisk (*), the most recent year listed will not reflect a complete year of data.


Due to the sometimes very small populations that result, we do not offer age, race, and gender breakdowns when viewing individual counties on this website. However, if you'd like to request such data, please email Dan Phillips at danzap@illinois.edu with a brief explanation of your intended use.

Both the SACWIS data and the CYCIS data were extracted on 6/30/2021.
