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.

²Population: The number of children entering substitute care during the fiscal year. Children who enter care and stay less than 8 days are excluded.
Measure: The median distance (in miles) from the child’s home of origin to the child’s initial placement. Only children with valid address data are included. Region and sub-region categories are based on where the case opened.
