¹Totals for “ALL CHILDREN” include records that may be missing geographic or demographic information, and so may exceed the sum of any given breakdown. For example, adding numbers for Cook, Northern, Central, and Southern regions may not produce the same total as that listed for ALL CHILDREN.

²Denominator: The number of children entering substitute care during the fiscal year who had siblings in substitute care. Siblings are defined as children who belong to a common family based on the ID number of the family. Children with no siblings in substitute care and siblings who are not in substitute care are excluded. Children who enter care and stay less than 8 days are excluded.
Numerator: The number of children placed in the same foster home as all of their siblings in substitute care in their initial placement.
